More technically, it calls the normalize() method on the root DOM Node (see standard Java javadocs related to this if you are curious) and then serializes the resultant Node tree using an output formatter. This can be useful when testing e.g. Web Services which often compress whitespace of the output.
As an example, for the following XML input file:
The normalized output would be:
