[oXygen-user] Format and Indent Problem

Tue Apr 8 14:05:19 CDT 2008

Not exactly

My proposal is, starting from an xml file to add space and carriage return
*INSIDE* tags

Doing this, the nature of space (ignorable or not) won't matter anymore
since it won't have any impact

Let me give a simple example


May it would make the will less readable than a full indent, but in some
case, it is just sufficient for debbugging and don't need further
