Subject Re: Does Jelly support CDATA blocks?

Having the code in a CDATA block makes it look like this:

i.e., all nice and spread out and such.  If it's just in a <source>
element it gets all crammed together on the same line.

Yup, that's exactly what's happening :-(

Guilty :-)

I guess what I'm looking for is to end up with this:

  // this is bad
  public void bar() {
      try {
          int x=2;
      } finally {

in my HTML.  Is there another way to do this?

Thanks much,
