Subject Changes to tidy-config.txt
Date Mon, 09 Mar 2009 12:35:44 GMT
Hi all,

I played around with 
in a custom project where I need to clean up the white spaces. 

For now we have not set the encoding in our configuration, this however
can lead to problems in combination with 
add-xml-decl: yes

If you have a xml file that did not had a xml declaration, tidy will add
one and use the default encoding which is "us-ascii".

I needed to add "char-encoding: utf8" to the config to get rid of
invalid character error that all my utf-8 characters had thrown.

Another thing is the indent of all attributes. IMO that it just too much
since if you have an element with 5 attributes you will have it now in 6

I propose the following change:
Index: etc/tidy-config.txt
--- etc/tidy-config.txt	(revision 748122)
+++ etc/tidy-config.txt	(working copy)
