This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
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 ...
