Re[2]: [wtp-dev] [Help Wanted] M10 wst.javascript: Design for Platform Use

Hello David,

I found only 'Shift left' and 'Shift right' formatting options for
JavaScript source editor in WTP 0.7. As far as I understand in release
1.0 will not be changes in JavaScript formatting.

Here is my suggestions about Impoving JavaScript Formatting.

JavaScript source editor should have preferences for formatting as
Java Editor in Eclipse 2.1, including:
1. New Lines
  - Insert new line before opening brace
  - Insert new lines in control statements
  - Clear all blank lines
  - Insert new line between 'else if'
  - Insert a new line inside an empty block
2. Line
  - Maximum line length
3. Style
  - Compact assignment
  - Insert tabs for indentation, not spaces
  - Number of spaces representing an identation level

and additional preferences:
4. Format comments
  - Enable comment formatting
  - Clear blank lines in comments
  - Maximum line width for comments

I need some guidance to start work on this item.
What documents would you recommend to read first of all?
