Possible Bug: Whitespace Not Preserved in Textarea

I am running Amaya 8.0 on Win32. When attempting to
load multiline text into a textarea, whitespace is not
preserved.

The source (abbreviated) is:

> <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"
>      
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
xml:lang="en">

.. . .

>   <form action="servlet/Notepad" method="post">
>   <table>
>     <caption>Save a note.</caption>
>     <tr><td><textarea name="note" cols="55"
            rows="20">I can save notes!!!!
>
>
>                More note text,
etc.</textarea></td></tr>
>     <tr><td><input type="submit" value="Save Note"
/></td></tr>
>   </table>
>   </form>

.. . .

This code loaded ignoring whitespace in Amaya. I did
not have this problem in any other browser (Internet
Explorer 6.0, Mozilla 1.3.1, Opera 7.0, or Lynx
2.8.3). I solved the problem by adding
xml:space="preserve" to it, however xml:space is not
defined for textarea in XHTML 1.1. Running it through
the W3C Validator, I recieved the following error
message when xml:space is present:

> 1. Line 48, column 20: there is no attribute "xml 
>
>             xml:space="preserve">I can save
notes!!!!
>                       ^

Could somebody please look into this bug?

Thanks in advance,
Lenny
