PHP Tidy, space remove after tag.

PHP Tidy, space remove after tag.


Anyone run into this before?


$xml= "<content><span>this is some</span> xml test</content>";

$tidy_options = array(
    'input-xml'        => true,
    'output-xml'       => true,
    'indent'           => true,
    'wrap'             => false,
    'show-body-only'   => true,
    'input-encoding'   => mb_detect_encoding($html),
    'output-encoding'  => 'utf8',
    'alt-text'         => 'HKMEx',
    'show-errors'      => 0,
    'show-warnings'    => 0

$tidy = new tidy();
$tidy->parseString($xml, $tidy_options);

print $tidy;

This outputs:

<span>this is some</span>xml test</content>

Note the space is gone after "</span>" causing it to visually appear like this: this is somexml test.

How can I prevent tidy from removing that space?

I have little to no control over what is inside of the <content> element and it is dynamic, so it could be any short html sentence with or without html markup.

Would need to see the $tidy function.
