Using the latest code in CVS I see this output:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<univ:tag xmlns:univ="http://someurl#">
     <innertag univ:id="someid" /></univ:tag>

That's semantically correct, so Thomas I think your problem is gone at
least in the latest code.

One problem though:  the line feed got eaten.  Backtracking shows me
XMLOutputter change 1.63 is to blame (1.62 works).

revision 1.63
date: 2001/07/20 03:31:34;  author: bmclaugh;  state: Exp;  lines: +39
Committing a change to XMLOutputter submitted by Lars Hoss. This fixes a
bug in XMLOutputter, generally occurring when documents are constructed
from an instance of DOMBuilder. It was generating additional newlines,
and there were additional checks in the content iteration loop that
needed to be checked to prevent these extraneous new lines from being
written out. This results in correct behavior for setTextNormalize() and

Seems this fixed a bug where new lines were added, but added a bug where
newlines could be removed.  Looking at the change, it took an overly
simplistic view of the problem.  Need to mark the newline thing as a bug
to fix.
