If you would like to see the magic, just update your "docs-commons"
directory and see three new files in a "docs-common/bin" directory:

1) xmlformat            -- the reformatting script
2) xmlformat-dfp.conf   -- configuration file for the script
3) tidy-bowl            -- driver script

You can try it out by doing this, in your document working directory:

$ ../docs-common/bin/tidy-bowl my-file.xml

Caution: this rewrites your input file inplace, so it may be wise to
keep a copy ;-)

This can also help reduce a lengthly local diff to what the CVS
server would actually see.
