On the other hand, these newlines and tabs and spaces also appear in parsed XML. Therefore this is indeed more symmetrical.

It would be nice if the newlines and tabs and spaces would be removed from the parsed XML (if it is not already supported and I missed some option). Now I do a pass through the parsed XML to remove all xmlText records that contain nothing but whitespace.
