So use the HTML Formatter. I still fail to see why you wouldn't want to do
that. Am I missing something? Simply spitting out XHTML with spaces before
the trailing slash isn't enough to ensure older browsers will work
properly. One of the 3.x browsers ignores <br />, if I recall aright, and
I'm also pretty sure that simulating non-valued attributes with constructs
like <select multiple=""> doesn't work as expected on one of the 3.x
