What you're referring to is often called "pretty-print", check out the 
Wikipedia entry and links


"To prettyprint (or pretty-print) is to present an object to a human reader, 
so that it is easier to perceive the object's structure, or, less commonly, 
to simply make it more attractive. A prettyprinter is a computer program 
that prettyprints. Prettyprinters for programming language source code are 
sometimes called code beautifiers or syntax highlighters."

Hi there,
I do not want Tidy to change ANY content. I just want indentation. Is that 
possible? I don't seem to get it to work with the parameters.
Best regards,
