Subject Re: silly question on "echo" task
Date Wed, 13 Nov 2002 16:26:47 GMT
Note that the message output for an echo is anything from <echo> 
to </echo>. When you indent your build.xml one tab, those echo 
tasks where you specify </echo> on the next line (one tab 
indented) would output one newline and a tab and thats what is 
contained  between <echo> and </echo>
