    How to Do New Line In Source Code?

    Hi,

    Just a quick question,

    Say i'm just doing a simple loop which in it outputs a bunch of <li></li>

    Now this is fine, but say I go to view the page in my source code all the <li>'s are on the same line, is there a way I can get them to appear on a new line in the Source Code?

    I just need it so I know what's going on when I view my page from the Source Code.

    Make a regular expression replace.
    Replace the following:
    Code:
    </li><li>
    with this:
    Code:
    </li>\n<li>
    Do not forget to use regular expression replace.

    Another thing, it might be that your editor does not contain a regular expression search (notepad for example).
    Software and cathedrals are much the same - first we build them, then we pray.

    like this for a new line;
    [code]<li></li>\n[code]

    like this for a tab and a new line;
    [code]\t<li></li>\n[code]

    this will help keep your source nicely formatted.

    ..and keep in mind that you need to use double quotes for wrapping those special characters.
