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 ...
