what I am struggling with are the text lines:

xml.coordinates do #what goes here?

    xml << '-122...' # right?


<< goes in with no translation.

I experimented with xml.text! but I could not find a way to preserve the indentation and get the linebreaks

What about xml.text! "-122...\n" ?

This worked, but I had to manually add spaces to get the indentation (not that that would be terribly important, but...)

Maybe if you use the """ (multiline string) or << (here doc) operator it will keep the indentation?

I'm having an extra problem now, I'm doing this: xml.Data 'ss:Type' => 'String' do   xml.text! format_excel_html(block_content) end

Now it works, but the output is like this: <Data> bla bla bla </Data>

The problem I have is the whitespace the builder creates around my content. Does anyone know a trick to get rid of this whitespace?

Thanks, Onno
