Is &world; a string or does it start and end with an element? If it's
a string, and you'd want that to be handled, then strip-space would
have to start being more sophisticated (though I imagine possibly
easier to implement, given that SAX/DOM does split things like the
above into a text node, an entity reference node and a text node).
