Not all xml comes from files, or has more than one line.. often with 
over-network or mostly-human-unreadable-anyways xml you'll strip all 
the whitespace, because you can always parse it and "toprettyxml()" it 
if you need later on.

You only really want line numbers and stuff if it doesn't parse when 
you throw the exception
