Am using IBM xml4c2_2_0 SAXPrint, and
It appears that leading and trailing spaces (whitespace) surrounding an
element, e.g.
     <name>mumble</name> ,
     <name>mumble </name>,
     and lastly
offer up via the characters handler mumble with no space, a trailing space,
and lastly a trailing NL (0x0A) respectively.
My difficulty lies in comparing the many forms of mumble with the string
"mumble" because of the white space.  Simon's "Building ..." Pp 87 suggests
that maybe (hopefully) the parser is removing white space.
Should the underlying SAX parser be removing the troublesome white space or
should i be removing this problem white space in the characters handler???
Thanks much
