           Summary: K2-DirectConOther-59
           Product: XML Query Test Suite
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XML Query Test Suite
        AssignedTo: frans.englich@telia.com
        ReportedBy: andrew.eisenberg@us.ibm.com

The query for this test case is:

<elem attr='





                 '/>

The expected result has an attribute value of:

<elem attr=" "/>

I believe that it should be:

<elem attr="                                                                   
                                           "/>

In case it does not display correctly, this attribute contains 111 space
characters.


In 3.7.1.1 Attributes, bullet 1 says:

"Each consecutive sequence of literal characters in the attribute content is
treated as a string containing those characters. Attribute value normalization
is then applied to normalize whitespace and expand character references and
predefined entity references. ... In either case, the normalization rules are
applied as though the type of the attribute were CDATA (leading and trailing
whitespace characters are not stripped.) ..."


XML, section 3.3.3 Attribute-Value Normalization says:

"If the attribute type is not CDATA, then the XML processor MUST further
process the normalized attribute value by discarding any leading and trailing
space (#x20) characters, and by replacing sequences of space (#x20) characters
by a single space (#x20) character."
