The Great Whitespace Debate

Since ancient times, men have fought over many trifling and trivial things. Among these, few have been more fiercely contested than the dreadful matter of whitespace handling. Should it be gobbled in whole, ignored, randomly eliminated, or dealt with according to a complex yet carefully chosen set of guidelines? As with any other religious concern, the variety of answers runs the gamut. Some men hold tightly to one answer as the true answer for all men in all situations, whilst others freely mix and match, admiring each tactic in different situations. Some men have grown weary of debating such trivial concerns, whilst others remain blissfully ignorant that such matters matter at all. To those reading this today, I put the question yet once more, and I beg you to remain civil in response...

How then, shall we handle whitespace in Velocity ???

Discussion of JTidy as a Workaround

I have looked into using JTidy as a workaround and it's quite promising. But we have to remember a few things before we all embrace the JTidyness.

All these points are quite compelling reasons not to use JTidy.
