Well it should not be exactly blowing up: My 75-page test document went up by 18 KB (~ 18 %) after indenting and recompressing, that should not be a big deal.

Why would anybody want to turn the indenting off? Does it impose some serious performance hit? (Just curious :)

If there is a problem with the one-big-line formatting, you can easily filter the main.xml through xmllint: $ xmllint --format main.xml > formatted.xml I’m not sure whether the xmllint comes with the OS, but I’d say it does. The formatted version is also nicer when you want to peek at the internals ...

That seems like a good idea to me. It could even be done as a contest (“design the best template for Mellel and win a week with the Redlers by the sea”), but from my viewpoint there is one substantial catch: the fonts. I do not remember what fonts are installed with OS X, but every good-looking thes...

Feature request: Display non-breaking spaces

Hello! In some languages (Czech, for example) one uses non-breaking spaces quite frequently. Would it be possible to add the non-breaking space to the list of displayable invisible characters? It could be rendered as Unicode 0x02fd (modified letter shelf) or something similar. And while I am writing...
