Issues that this hotfix rollup fixes

Issue 1

The System.Windows.Markup.XamlWriter.Save method can’t turn off indentation for an element that has the xml:space="preserve" setting. This results in additional spaces being added to the element. For example, a paragraph represented by the following XAML will be transformed into incorrect XAML by XamlWriter.Save method:

<Paragraph><Span><Run Text="Test"/></Span><Run Text=" "/></Paragraph>
Incorrect XAML created by the XamlWriter.Save method:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?><Section xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"><Paragraph xml:space="preserve"><Span>Test</Span> <Run> </Run></Paragraph></Section>
Expected (correct) XAML:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?><Section xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"><Paragraph xml:space="preserve"><Span>Test</Span> <Run> </Run></Paragraph></Section> 

Issue 2

Some content is missing in printouts if transparency is used in Windows 7 and earlier versions. For example, some content in a table border could be missing and result in a blank area in printouts.

Issue 3

Some content is blurry in printouts if transparency is used in Windows 7 and earlier versions. This occurs even when you set the print to photographic level quality.

This hotfix improves the output quality that is obtained by using the OutputQuality.Photographic value. Be aware that documents that have better quality require larger print spooler files and longer wait times. If these side effects aren’t desirable, you can adjust the output quality of the print to High.
