------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  = Handling of White Spaces =
  
+ === Summary ===
+ 
+ It must be possible to specify for a given element content how white spaces are to be handled (i.e. whether they are to preserve or collapsible).
+ 
+ 
+ === Challenge/Issue ===
+ 
+ Knowing whether the white spaces in a given element are collapsible or not is important for proper segmentation and matching when using computer assisted translation tools.
+ 
+ The xml:space="preserve" attribute provides most likely a good solution for this requirement. But it could be also useful to have a mechanism to specify this property at the schema level.
+ 
+ 
+ === Notes ===
+ 
+ There are case where the white space handling can be overriden at the style sheet level only, bypassing information withing the XML document itself: CSS allows the property 'white-space' (See [http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/text.html#white-space-prop]).
