In parsing xml using the XML() functionality, I've found that multiple spaces are consolidated into a single space, as shown in the following example, where the multiple spaces result in the single space within the string after using the XML function:
-}xml$="abc 123",ofst=0;x$=xml(next from xml$,ind=ofst,key=name$);?x$
Researching this, I see that it is fairly standard for XML parsers to consolidate white space. But, in some cases, we need to keep that white space (eg: a user entered a value that comes through the xml, and we need to match based on that value).
Is there any way to tell the XML() command to *NOT* consolidate the white space?
