Subject RE: Xerces 1.0.2 DOMParser, whitespace and #text elements
Date Wed, 08 Mar 2000 22:25:22 GMT
Hi,
Nope, my document does indeed have a
DOCTYPE line. In fact, the DTD is in 
a separate file, and it parses just fine,
using DOMParser with validation turned
on.

Where should we go next?

	many thanks for your kind help!

This is all clearly documented on the features page. For the 
parser to know that the whitespace can be ignored, there *must* 
be a DTD associated with the document. So my number one guess 
would be that your document does not have a DOCTYPE line. Is
this true?
