It's not a XML issue...

element's content is trimmed. I never thought it could hurt anyone,
but it obviously does.

I'll remove that trimming for the next version, although then all
handlers that don't need it will have to trim it them selves. Not very
pretty, but I guess it does make more sense that a way - they'll be more
independent that way, not relaying on the main code stripping their
beloved space. ;)

In the mean time, you can apply the attached patch. Just note that
with this patch, nALFS will leave _all_ element content's white space,
which might (or not) cause some problems when multi-line content is used
(for example).
