Dreamweaver.  I don't think it has that option.

(Btw, i'm wondering about the implications of automatically suppressing 
blank spaces at the end of lines of content for text that is written in 
scripts such as Japanese or Thai, where the whitespace rules may produce 
unexpected effects if a space at the end of your line is removed.)
