Douglas,

What would you expect from this then?

<text xml:space="default"><a xlink:href="??">link1 </a><a xlink:href="???">
link2</a></text>

How many spaces are there between link1 and link2. If you contend there is
only one, which link does it belong to? I.e. where would you go if you
clicked on it?

For what it's worth firefox 3 will currently do what Inkscape does. It
treats each nested element  separately and does not count the contents of
nested elements as part of the parent for determining whether to compress
whitespace.

Regards

Robert.
