How often in practice will you find a newline character in the middle of HTML?
Just tested in my browser - newline characters within HTML are ignored and the output is displayed correctly.
I am asking, because I would like to introduce a small domain specific language that works with the newline character as a trigger (outside of HTML, using the off-side-rule).
Now, if it is regarded as perfectly normal practice to place the newline anywhere within HTML, I would probably need regular expressions to find out the boundaries of the blocks.
My research has indicated, that especially in a TEXTAREA, a newline character is perfectly normal.
Thanks in advance
