Description asleson 2005-02-16 21:30:28 UTC
NetBeans should have a "format code" option for
XML documents that pretty-prints the code for
easier reading.  Many XML documents that are
produced via XSLT are printed out on one big line,
without line breaks or indenting or anything.  

Others IDEs already do this out-of-the-box (namely
IDEA) so now that NetBeans supports J2EE
development, XML formatting is necessary.

Also, the editor should hightlight a closing tag's opening tag and
vice-versa, much like it does with JSP files.

Reformating code is duplicate of issue 22510.

Tag matching part is duplicate of issue 30234.

*** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 22510 ***
