It is possible to ask XMLUnit to ignore whitespace.
Unfortunately this only does string trims so any embedded
whitespace remains a difference as far as XMLUnit is
concerned.

Request: ensure that text comparisons when whitespace is
to be ignored is undertaken against
"whitespace-normalized" strings.

    This would be very useful for me. I'm currently trying to
    format some pretty-printed XHTML with stuff generated by an
    XSLT transform. Line-wrapped text is calculated as different
    from non-wrapped but otherwise identical text.

    there now is an option to "normalize" whitespace, which replaces all whitespace chars with " " and collapses multiple consecutive whitespace chars to a single space.
