no, no; I know of at least one other that might agree with you.

Right, but when initially converting a large document to OSIS, what is
the "OSIS entry cost"?
How do you handle stuff like double-space between sentences?
isn't an XML escape is it?
this is an example
(I was going to write an example, but decided my own email is a great
example. I wanted a return after 'How about:'
I think there are many ways people use returns and other whitespace in
writing and I'm hesitant to say that it is acceptable to strip all
whitespace throughout the entire document.

No, no! Just wanted to keep us on track with the question at hand. I
could probably guess the appropriate way to encode the excerpt and
didn't want us to started talking about that.

Yeah, what are you doing up at 1:55am? Probably traveling again.
