Word Wrapping and XML Markup

jEdit should be able to automatically format XML files
in a more advanced way.

e.g. <XML-TAG-1 ...><XML-TAG-2> should be split between
the 2 tags, i.e. between the ending ...> and the
beginning <... .

Currently, jEdit is NOT able to recognize this as a
valid word wrap splitting point.

Also, jEdit should be able to automatically indent and
format the XML in a more readable fashion, e.g.:
<XML-TAG-1 ...
_... TAG may continue IF it does NOT fit on one LINE
_<- BUT let it be slightly indented
_...> # END OF TAG
____<XML-TAG-2; INDENT IF nested within previous TAG

... and so on

This should all be done automatically.

I will attach a good file to test such options.

    Just checking -- are you aware of the XMLIndenter plugin?
    It does a pretty good job of formatting xml files. I've
    attached a copy of your example file formatted with
    XMLIndenter for your perusal.

    I should have mentioned that XMLIndenter is not a separate
    plugin anymore, it's part of the XML plugin and is
    compatible with the Beauty plugin.

    Indeed, I missed the XML-plugin. [Sorry for this, my fault.]

    However, there are still 2 issues that would be great to
    implement:
    - IF I choose word-wrap, and the TAG is continued on a
    second line, it would be nice to indent the 2-... lines by
    1-2 spaces:
    <TAG-START ...
    _<- TAG continues BUT is indented a little bit

    - again, IF word-wrap is selected, I would like to have some
    other line-breaking points, like after ";" in a TAG (rare
    occurence, but may occur)

    Nevertheless, great program!

    Assigning to Rob McKinnon, who wrote the xmlindenter.

    If Rob doesn't respond in the next few days, I'll take this one on.
