Re: Space normalization for its:locNote

Message-ID: <511925EB.3070409@ul.ie>
To: public-multilingualweb-lt@w3.org
for the purpose of the its validation testing
we(ul) have added logic to our validator to ensure that

  <its:locNote>The variable {0} has three possible values: 'printer',
     'stacker' and 'stapler options'.</its:locNote>
  raw output which is split onto two lines maps to the expected output
however we can remove this if the non normalised form is desired.

sean

My code restructuring moved the normalization to the PO serializer, so the output for the test suite is now getting the non-normalized form.
