I wrote a small function for this purpose some time ago.
I didn't test it with the last versions of libxml2 nor did I ensure that this code if correct but it gives
you the idea of a method that you can use to remove blank nodes.
The usage is for instance:
doc = xmlReadFile (xmlfile, NULL, 0);
if (doc == NULL)
/* Deal with error... */
Hope this helps,
glbRemoveBlankNodes (xmlNodePtr n)
if (n == NULL)
cur = n->children;
next = cur->next;
if (xmlIsBlankNode (cur))
cur = next;

Yes you are right.
But I am not sure my function will do a good job.
I know 2 whitespaces : " ", "\t", ... But I am not sure that I know all of them.
My function will probably forgot to strip some whitespaces...
This is the reason why I would like to use an already defined function.
Is there a function which do this job?

Anyway, there seems to have no other solution with libxml2 only.
The spaces are part of the text of the document, so it's not likely that
a conformant XML parser will strip them for you.
You could of course remove the spaces in C after parsing, just as if you
decided to remove every occurrence of an upper-case "B" from the input.
That's just standard C string processing.
