? Whitespace in HTML (except in pre components and some others) isn't really contrastive. that's, any volume of whitespace is nearly as good as only one house. So each time HTML::TreeBuilder sees whitespace tokens because it is parsing the HTML resource, it compacts every one team right into a unmarried area. in addition, whitespace among a few forms of tags (such as among


, or among


) is not significant in any respect, so while HTML::TreeBuilder sees such whitespace, it simply discards it. This whitespace mangling is the default habit of an HTML::TreeBuilder tree and will be replaced by means of thoughts that you simply set sooner than parsing from a dossier: my $root = HTML::TreeBuilder->new; $root->ignore_ignorable_whitespace(0); # do not attempt to delete whitespace among block-level parts. $root->no_space_compacting(1); # do not spoil each whitespace sequences right into a unmarried area. With these traces additional to our software, the parse tree output dossier finally ends up with the ideal whitespace.
