XML ignorableWhiteSpaces

Is there a way to write a DTD, so the spaces are ignored inside an
elements tag?
I am using a validating parser

No. An XML parser won't ignore whitespace in the content of elements.

If you declare an element to have element-only content, a validating
parser will tell the application that the whitespace between the
elements is in element-only content, but what the application does with
that information is up to it.

[Incidentally, "inside a tag" means inside the angle brackets. You
presumably meant *between* the start and end tags.]
