... you are using the wrong tool.  Source control systems are meant 
for program source code where line breaks have meaning, usually 
to separate program statements.

You need an XML-aware content management system that understands 
that whitespace (CR, LF, TAB, etc.) must be ignored and that 
the position of attributes in element tags does not matter.

So don't blame FrameMaker.  All XML editors are "deficient" in this 
regard if you examine their "source code".  But then they all 
obey the rules, so this doesn't matter.
