Product and version: FileMaker Server 15.0.3.308

OS and version: Mac OS X 10.10.5

Hardware: Mac Mini (Late 2014)

Description: When retrieving records using the XML API (i.e. https://server/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml), any fields that just have spaces in them are returned as completely empty (the data element is literally: "<data/>"). While it is odd to have fields with just spaces, the API should be returning accurate data in all cases...

How to replicate: Use the API to retrieve a record with a field with just spaces

Workaround (if any): None
