Cocoon API: Class HTMLFormatter

Class HTMLFormatter

All Implemented Interfaces:
Cacheable, Configurable, Formatter, Status

public class HTMLFormatter
extends AbstractFormatter

This formatter is used to serialize HTML content. The difference between this formatter and the XMLFormatter is that while the XML formatter doesn't have any semantic information about the document type being formatted, this class handles tags like <br/> and transforms them to HTML that non-XML-aware browsers can understand. Note that this creates markap that is non-well-formed XML. If you want to be able to send HTML code to old-browser but still create well-formed XML, use the XHTMLFormatter instead.
