Thanks Peter. I was just throwing 'normalize' out there. I'm no XML guru,
but I thought there was special optional text processing that could be
enabled depending whether an element is declared in a DTD or Schema.
I vaguely remember it would replace all whitespace chars, including
new lines, with a single space char. I had this kind of normalization
in mind.

My point was more about being able to cleanly add such attributes in
the future by having a <text> element rather than a textname attribute.

Cheers, --DD
