Dear support,


I use tidy online found at 




I have trailing space in nodes of a html file, which I would like to
preserve when converting the file to xml

I could not find any hints in the documentation whether this is possible or


Could you give me tip where to look. That would be great. Thanks very much
in advance and kind regards

Markus Ohlenroth



In the following example the space after “El” is removed in the result file


<span lang=ES style='mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman";

text-transform:uppercase'>El </span>


Tidy’s transormation:

<span lang="ES"

style='mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman";




Mit freundlichen Grüßen
