HTML is (fortunately or unfortunately) a document type of SGML, which
defines document content, not document formatting. IMHO, it is the
responsibility of browser writers to supply adequate options for handling
whitespace. If HTML is extended to include formatting information, it
becomes YAWPF (Yet Another Word Processing Format :), unsuitable for users
who do not possess (or could not use) GUI browsers.
