Yeah, I tried that but it doesn't generate valid WebObjects code.
The concept between a "repetition" type WebObjects tag is that the data 
associated with that tag is an array of data that gets looped through 
and in my example the  <tr> tags generate rows of data from that array.

This is the output when I use new-blocklevel-tags:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
     "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
   <head>
     <meta name="generator" content="WebObjects 5.2" />
     <title>
       Tidy Test
     </title>
   </head>
   <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
     <div>
       <webobject name="DataItemRepetition">
         <table>
           <tr>
             <td>
               <webobject name="DataItem"></webobject>
             </td>
           </tr>
         </table>
       </webobject>
     </div>
   </body>
</html>

What I want is:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
     "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
   <head>
     <meta name="generator" content="WebObjects 5.2" />
     <title>
       Tidy Test
     </title>
   </head>
   <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
     <div>
         <table>
          <webobject name="DataItemRepetition">
           <tr>
             <td>
               <webobject name="DataItem"></webobject>
             </td>
           </tr>
          </webobject>
         </table>
     </div>
   </body>
</html>


Thanks
Mike
