Subject Re: [Axis2] OM Space handling
Date Fri, 26 Aug 2005 19:54:43 GMT
I'd think you should only get the SPACE event if you're using 
validation, since the API says it represents ignorable whitespace and 
that's only defined by reference to a document grammar. Have you seen 
SPACE occur in cases without validation?
