Attribute Value Normalization

Practical XML, 2nd edition, p92 says that if the attribute value has been declared as simple CDATA, leading and trailing whitespaces are stripped and multiple whitespace characters are replaced with a single whitespace character.

BUT XML 1.1 REC, 3.3.3 says this should be done 'if the attribute type is *not* CDATA'.

Obviously the REC is right. But am I misunderstanding something in Practical XML??? There's nothing about this in the errata ...
