Bug#564915: debian-edu-doc: improve xml generation from wiki source

Package: debian-edu-doc
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch


on doing some translation work of the debian-edu manual *.po files I noticed 
some extra space in tagged text like:
<emphasis>still incomplete </emphasis> instead of
<emphasis>still incomplete</emphasis>
<computeroutput>2010-01-12 </computeroutput> instead of
If not corrected in the translation this can give nasty spaces or single 
full-stops on single new lines in the translations.

The space is introduced in the conversion by a sed "s%<\/%\n<\/%g" command 
which breaks lines in the xml-file after the close-tag. A solution might be to 
break lines there only for specific tags (see patch).   
The downside is, that after correction fuzzy translations in the *.po files 
increase, which have to be checked. 
But if we want to do it, we should do it the earlier the better.
