I have been doing some testing using 'virsh nwfilter-edit'. I edited a comment and put horizontal tabs into it or newlines or a combination of both. Both of these seem to automatically be converted to space,  meaning that when the XML is generated after the parsing, the tab or newline now are shown as simple space. I also wrote the XML into a file using 'virsh nwfilter-dumpxml', added a newline in the comment, ran unix2dos on it to get '\r' and used 'virsh nwfilter-define' on it again, and the '\r' disappeared. >From that I took that the XML parser does the correct replacement already and I don't need to worry about it  -- assuming it would do the same for vertical tab as well.
