[Chicken-users] Minor issue with spiffy's sxml->html

Hi all.

I've got a (hopefully fairly minor and fixable) issue with the
sxml->html function that's part of Spiffy. Example:

(use spiffy)
     (head (title "Title")
           (body (h1 "Heading")
                 (p "This sentence should end "
                    (a (@ (href "";)) "with a link")


<p>This sentence should end <a href="";>with a link</a>

However, I'd actually wanted the full stop to immediately follow the
link, like so:

<p>This sentence should end <a href="";>with a link</a>.</p>

...and not be separated by end-of-line whitespace (which renders in a
browser as a single space).

After testing it a bit, it looks like any HTML generated via
sxml->html will have all close tag(s) followed by end-of-line

Does anyone know of a way to disable this behaviour? I was about to
dive in and investigate the sxml->html source code directly, but
thought it might be a bit more sensible to ask for help/advice first. :)

Any suggestions much appreciated, thanks.

Frankly, I'm sick and tired of hearing that Dr. Cham was a madman.
Yes, he tried to bury himself alive. Yes, he electrocuted his niece.
Yes, in fact, he did dynamite a retirement home. But this was all with
good cause and, in each case, I believe he took the correct course of
action.         -- whytheluckystiff in Why's (Poignant) Guide To Ruby
