Right. We'll work on a print-friendly solution with PDF... but still the
best way to do this is to accept guidelines that no more than 80 columns
should be used for source code chunks into docs or the system is not

indentation. And tell me how we can have xml and java examples without
respected indentation.

If you have suggestions, I'm wide open.

Again, I'm wide open to suggestions.
