[jdom-interest] Expanding <script> element.

As Brad said, something funky's going on if xml:space="preserve" is 
being added because JDOM doesn't ever add that.

What can help you figure it out (and will help us figure it out if you 
can't) is to write up a small sample program that demonstrates the bug. 
  Make the program as trivial as possible, removing ALL unnecessary 
complexity.  For example, create the document content in a String. 
Build it on line one, print it on line two.  That kind of thing.  Make 
it as simple as possible while still showing the problem.  If you 
simplify in some fashion and the problem goes away, that's probably the 
thing responsible.  If the test program can't be simplified any further, 
then it's a JDOM bug and if you send in the sample program we'll fix it.
