[owasp-antisamy] Extra line feeds and spaces in cleaned html?

I'm not sure if this is a "bug" per se, but it's curious behavior. An 
input fragment that doesn't have any newlines gets cleaned to two lines 
of HTML. And the SAX output has an extra space character at the 
beginning of the second line. Why would it do anything other than 
preserve the whitespace that was on the original string?

Input:
<b>hello</b> <i>world</i>

DOM output:
<b>hello</b>
<i>world</i>

SAX output:
<b>hello</b>
  <i>world</i>

This is with AntiSamy 1.5.1 and NekoHTML 1.9.16.
Thanks,
