   XML Spy and mixed content

I've been exchanging some documents with an author using XML Spy. It
really appears to me that XML Spy is mangling the mixed content. In
particular, it turns:

  <p><termdef>blah blah</termdef> de blah blah blah</p>


         <termdef>blah blah</termdef> de blah blah blah</p>

But since I don't have access to XML Spy (or convenient access to the
platform that it runs on), I'm trying to restrain myself from having a
screaming fit about how it's mangling my mixed content: it's quite
possible that my co-author has some random setting configured

Anyway, I'm hoping someone out there can satisfy my curiosity. If XML
Spy loads the DTD and sees that there's mixed content, please tell me
that it doesn't introduce random *significant* white space into my
document. Failing that, tell me there's a setting I can have my
co-author frob so that it doesn't mangle this particular document.

                                        Be seeing you,

P.S. Apologies for sending this random query over such a widely
distributed channel.
