[oXygen-user] oXygen-8.2 XHTML Format and Indent Errors

The option that contains "Indent (when typing)" in name should be 
applied only for text inserted by typing the characters directly in the 
document. The option that contains "Indent on paste" should be applied 
only for a block of text pasted in the edited document. I see that the 
first option changes the indenting of text pasted in a <script> element 
but it should not have any effect on pasted text. Only the second one 
should have an effect on pasted text. We will fix that.
