But not for the content of an element! If I write an XML file like:
The content of "Node" has to be the same. Doesn't matter for which XML
file. What XMLsec does is just adding whitespace for indenting to the
contents element which is _not_ OK.
If you run my example application to demonstrate this problem you will
realize that when you change "xmlIndentTreeOutput = 1;" to
"xmlIndentTreeOutput = 0;" the indention does change and especially the
content of "Node" does too (it will change from " \ncontentOfNOde\n
" to "\ncontentOfNode\n").
Libxml2 does it right. Just check it.
