I am creating an XML document that will be translated via Mercator. The
Mercator mappers have told me that I need to remove all the empty nodes from
the document before it can be handed off to them, is this possible using
I have also been told that all newlines have to be removed, including
the one at the end of the XML declaration. I see in the javadoc that the
XML declaration is always printed on its own line, why?
Both of the above requests seem kind of unusual to me. I can see
removing the empty tags and newlines to cut down file size but from what I
have been told Mercator has difficulty with XML documents that have not been
tailored as outlined above. Is this normal?
