Space in Static Text
when using the static text property for one field in the syndicator, I have a problem with just setting a space. No matter how many spaces I set there, the tag in XML is always empty.
Do I have to escape this somehow and if yes how? Is there any workaround to create this tag with only a space between opening and closing tags?

I've tried to reproduce this on on my local machine. I'm using the latest MDM 5.5 Patch 3 hotfix (18.104.22.168). If I add one or more blanks as static text, the result is the following:
single blank w/o escaping => <XML Tag> </XML Tag> (this is what you'd expect, right?)
single blank w/ HTML escaping => <XML Tag> </XML Tag> (this looks like a bug, because I'd expect the & n b s p ; in this case)
single blank w/ URL escaping => <XML Tag>%20</XML Tag> (looks OK)
The same is valid for multiple blanks (e.g. three blanks with URL encode result in %20%20%20). Is it possible for you to upgrade to the latest HF? If not, I'd suggest to open a CSS ticket on this one.
