For a white space character (#x20, #xD, #xA, #x9), append a space character
(#x20) to the normalized value.

That point in XML - http://www.w3.org/TR/xml/#AVNormalize - does _not_ say that
multiple spaces (#x20) should be collapsed into a single space.   And, like I
said: the DOM inspectors of Firefox, Opera and Safari, _in XML mode_: also
doesn't remove multiple consecutive occurences of teh space (#x20;) character.

Are we agreement about that?
