That's not what my problem is, that I know about ( crlf's between nodes),,

Here is the deal:
<cow>
	<hide value="spotted
with black and white"></hide>
</cow>

After the word "spotted" there is a crlf, -inside- the attribute value. 
Sholdn't it be treated as part of the value?

The value now comes stripped of that crlf.
