   RE: [xml-dev] Handling of significant whitespace in .NET XmlReader

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

And that is one demonstration of the limits of XML as 
a 'self-describing' format.  In the long haul, schematization 
in some form is required.  Given the other benefits, there are 
numerous 'advantages of XML' documents that should be ammended 
to reflect this fact.


From: Derek Denny-Brown [mailto:derekdb@microsoft.com]

the only viable option is (2).  And indeed, if you use the
XmlValidatingReader and have a DTD/XSD which identifies the content as
mixed, you will get back SignificantWhitespace, rather than just Whitespace.
