The XML::Filter::DetectWS module is a PerlSAX filter that detects which
character data contains ignorable whitespace and optionally filters it.
The XML spec defines ignorable whitespace as the character data found
in elements that were defined in an <!ELEMENT> declaration with a model
of 'EMPTY' or 'Children' (Children is the rule that does not contain
In addition, XML::Filter::DetectWS allows the user to define other
whitespace to be ignorable.  The ignorable whitespace is passed to
the PerlSAX Handler with the ignorable_whitespace handler, provided
that the Handler implements this method.  Otherwise it is passed to
the characters handler.  If the SkipIgnorableWS is set, the ignorable
whitespace is simply discarded.  XML::Filter::DetectWS also takes
xml:space attributes into account.
CDATA sections are passed in the standard PerlSAX way (i.e. with
surrounding start_cdata and end_cdata events), unless the Handler
does not implement these methods.  In that case, the CDATA section is
simply passed to the characters method.
