Hi Jonathan,

I'm not sure if this has to do with the "tspan" element: white space
handling is done at XML level so, if one wants white space to be
handled as-is, 'xml:space="preserve"' should be used in that set of
elements. See the XML specification regarding white space handling [1]
for more information. ;-)

I'd say the differences can be implementation issues (i.e., not
respecting the default value for "xml:space", which is not to preserve
white space)...? Could you elaborate a bit on which specific
implementations did you experience the incoherent behavior (mostly for
curiosity, currently)?

Hope this helps,
