These errors refer to the 24 August 1999 XHTML 1.0 proposed

Section 4.7 refers to XML's stripping of whitespace in attribute
values.  This only applies to non-CDATA attributes.

In the DTDs and entities referred to in Appendix A

- xml:space attributes are declared as CDATA.  XML requires them to
  be (default|preserve)

- the declarations for amp and lt are not as required by XML.
