Title: Problem with Inserted space and Character on Solaris

Hi everyone,

I received this email from a colleague earlier and am unable to answer it.  Knowing, as I do from lurking, the level of skill on this list, I was wondering if anyone on-list would be able to help.

      A client of mine has a MX application which does some XML/DOM manipulation and pushes the resulting XML out as the response (either to the browser on direct request, or to another script via cfhttp).

      Everything is working fine *except* that on Solaris only, the output has a single space character and a carriage return preceding the XML declaration. The *exact* same code, when executed on a Windows 2k server does *not* produce the extraneous white space. On both servers, they have turned on the option to suppress white space, and the script in question also uses RESET="YES" in a cfcontent tag directly preceding the <cfoutput> tag that returns the XML stream. While this sounds really minor, it's not: The XML in question must be processed by a plug-in which chokes if there is *any* white space before the XML declaration (which is fair enough as it isn't valid XML). Has anyone seen anything like this before?

Thank you all in advance
