As to your answer: what he said!    (03)

According to XML 2.11, each newline sequence becomes a newline character, 
but then according to XML 3.3.3 each newline character becomes a space 
character.    (04)

So, you will get a space for each newline sequence in an attribute, but you 
won't be able to distinguish entered spaces from normalized spaces.    (05)
