AFAIK XPP has always reported whitespace properly. Glue's Electric XML 
is the only parser I know of that discards whitespace between elements 
(though this may have become an option rather than hardwired behavior in 
recent versions).

XPP3 is the current version of the XPP parser. XPP3 implements the 
XMLPull interface ( and is compliant with the XML 
specification except with respect to DTDs and related issues (general 
entities, etc.). These generally aren't used for data-oriented XML, and 
I think they're actually forbidden by SOAP.
