When you use the Microsoft BizTalk Server Adapter for Web Services Enhancement (WSE) 2.0 in Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004 or in BizTalk Server 2006, some elements that contain space characters in a message may be reset to empty.
This problem occurs because the BizTalk Server Adapter for WSE 2.0 does not set the PreserveWhitespace property. The default value is false, so white spaces in elements are lost when you send a message by using the BizTalk Server Adapter for WSE 2.0.
