I can handle comments by overriding, but not attribute values since that
is 'protected final' in Serializer. It is easy enough for me to
maintain that change in TextWriter though as new XOMs are released; I
just thought I'd pose the question.

The reason I want to pretty print is that the XML is machine generated
and so has no indentions... I want them, so I have to deal with the
processing of space and hard returns too I understand. If I could get
the indentions but preserve all other space I would. That's the beauty
of open source though... I can make those tweaks I need.

Thanks, Kevin
