I believe that the normalization of whitespace here was done to combat an issue IE had with cloneNodes where we're instead consolidating text nodes.

Leaving this bug open in case anyone has suggestions regarding a potential fix we haven't looked at yet.

This is a pretty big problem. I've had to stop using clone entirely because something like <span>the</span> <span>fish</span> becomes "thefish" after cloning.
