 The current implementation of XmlTextWriter doesn't seem to honor the
 xml:space attribute if set to "preserve" in an element. It only preserves
 spaces in the element in which the element is defined, and not also in the
 sub-elements like defined in the W3C's XML recommendation

+It works on my box. Notet that XML namespace URI is required:
+XmlTextWriter xtw = new XmlTextWriter (Console.Out);
+xtw.WriteStartElement ("out");
+xtw.WriteStartElement ("test");
+xtw.WriteAttributeString ("xml:space", "default");
+xtw.WriteWhitespace ("   ");
+Console.Error.WriteLine ("******:" + xtw.XmlSpace);
+xtw.WriteEndElement ();
+xtw.WriteStartElement ("test");
+xtw.WriteAttributeString ("xml", "space",
+"http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace", "preserve");
+xtw.WriteWhitespace ("   ");
+Console.Error.WriteLine ("******:" + xtw.XmlSpace);
+xtw.WriteStartElement ("foo");
+Console.Error.WriteLine ("******:" + xtw.XmlSpace);
+xtw.WriteEndElement ();
+xtw.WriteEndElement ();
+xtw.WriteEndElement ();
+$ mono ./xmlspacewrite.exe
+<out><test xml:space="default">   ******:None
+</test><test xml:space="preserve">   ******:Preserve
+ /></test></out>
