I have seen with Adept 5.4.1W that you can get multiple whitespace if you are not careful in cutting and pasting. Adept seems to check to see if the character next to the insertion point is whitespace and if so, does not add another. But it does not scan the document during deleting or backspacing to keep multiple white spaces from accumulating.

The behaviour I've witnessed with ADEPT (5.4.1 through V7) is that when you are editting, you cannot enter multiple spaces in series in a PCDATA area unless you are working in an element that the FOSI has defined to have "as-is quadding". However, if your SGML data was created outside of ADEPT and within the PCDATA areas there are places with multiple spaces in series, ADEPT preserves them and does not collapse them into a single space.
