Pretty Printing XML

  I'm making XML documents with a DOM implementation. When I save these
to a file (rootElement.toString()) it has no line breaks etc. I could
slap in a line break element in each element but I'd rather not.

 Is there a way to
   a) pretty print XML - (DOMWriter??)
   b) ignore whitespace on XMLdocument load?

 Right now I'm using jclark's stuff, but it's all SAX based so the
choice of parser is not that critical.
