Note that XMetaL has (or had, at one point) options for formatting the resulting XML, and you can (or could) also say whether lines should wrap inside a given element in the style sheet, if you want the authors not to make long lines. > If I had a tool that would reliably pretty-print the XML source without > trashing any important whitespace formatting, I'd be fine. Are any such > tools really reliable enough to be trusted? If you define "important" precisely enough, yes. I generally use vi, oXygen and xxe, although Java programs still tend to look so out of place on Linux that there has to be a fairly huge benefit to them before I use them for long, so that limits me a little. Serna is also worth looking at for some applications. Liam -- Liam Quin, W3C XML Activity Lead, http://www.w3.org/People/Quin/ http://www.holoweb.net/~liam/ * http://www.fromoldbooks.org/
