Hi ya,


  Mac 10.4.3 on OSX 10.9.3.


  Working on an import project I am preprocessing the HTML. When I pretty print the output HTML, ready for import, and import it I can get an additional space. I believe this is because the carriage return of the pretty printing is converted to a space, or perhaps that the CR is breaking up one sequence of whitespace into two. As an example take this fragment of HTML. I doubt the <i> tag is relevant and it is stripped in either case.


reprint of this <i>Introduction</i> would shortly


This text results in an import of :


reprint of this Introduction would shortly


all neatly single spaced.


This source fragment though :


reprint of this
     would shortly


results in this in the tool :


reprint of this  Introduction  would shortly


Note the pairs of spaces before and after the word Introduction.


It is possible for pretty printing to produce unintended spaces to appear in a broswer rendering also. In that case though as a carriage return is handled as being essentially the same as whitespace there is only one space for something like this. But that case will result in a space where none was intended not two where one was.
