Therefore, if currently the xml:space attribute in XHTML 1.1 is not yet REC,
I can expect it will become in more or less time...
In fact, I have my XHTML 1.1 documents generated from XSL. The input documents contains XHTML 1.1 
too and are valid against W3C DTD. As a result, the XSL processor generates my xhtml elements 
systematically with the xml:space attribute (as it has a default value in the DTD).
Should I generate 'XHTML 1.1 draft' documents or should I use an alternate DTD (the old REC one?)?

Thanks for your support,
