If I remember right, someone claimed long ago that MSXML (and probably
its derivatives) counted itself an "XML application", not an "XML
processor", and thereby gave itself the right to discard whitespace.

My memory's pretty fuzzy on this one - I suspect it was a number of
years ago, and I'd be happy to be corrected.
