[x3d-public] question on MFStrings in XML.

did I make a mistake?

string='"a" "b"'

all are good as input

string='"a"   .  "b"'
string='"a"   "b"'

and I can't list the big number of other combos of space(s) and 
aand/or a single comma now, but also as input, any of those above 
should be good.

The preferred form is of course:
like all other MFs.

Yes, the missing space is there too.  Search for "" in

more precisely


<Text string='"Target Locked" " FIRE!..""(Green Button)"'/>

This is a bug in X3dToXhtml.xslt stylesheet.  (I think Roy reported 
this as well).  There are also special-character issues which Andreas 
reported which need to be addressed.

Will investigate.

Please use the source instead of the pretty-print annotated version.
