[oXygen-user] Format and Indent Problem

I understand that your proposal is to normalize some text 
nodes (the text nodes with whitespace characters and non 
whitespace characters but not the text nodes with whitespace 
characters only) even if that leads to lines that exceed the 
maximum line length set in Preferences -> Editor -> Format. 
I consider breaking the lines that exceed the maximum length 
one of the main factors that make the pretty-printed 
document more readable. Without enforcing this maximum 
length the document will not be more readable after the 
pretty-print operation.

If I misunderstand your proposal please give a complete 
example of what you mean.
