Uhm you misunderstood me.

I want XMLOutputter to ADD whitespace for to make the output more readable
for the purposes of debugging.

By default XMLOutputter preserves whitespace as the XMLspec
says whitepace is (can be) sigificant.

This means if an element has children but no Text nodes betwheen them
with newlines the elements will be output on a single line.

But there is options on the XMLOutoputter to change this
so see the javadoc for the XMLOutputter
