+                        <p>
+            Please read our document about <a href="problems.html">problems</a>
+            before deciding that there is an unreported
+            bug in Ant.
+        </p>
+                                <p>
+            You have a few choices at this point. You can send
+            an email to the <code>user</code> mailing list
+            to see if
+            others have encountered your issue and find out how they may
+            have worked around it. If after some discussion, you feel it
+            is time to create
+            a bug report, this is a simple operation in the bug database.
+            Please try to provide as much information as possible in order
+            to assist the developers in resolving the bug. Please try to enter
+            correct values for the various inputs when creating the bug, such
+            as which version of Ant you are running, and on which platform,
+            etc. Once the bug is created, you can also add attachments to
+            the bug report.
+         </p>
+                                <p>
+            What information should you include in your bug report? The
+            easiest bugs to fix are those that are most easily reproducible,
+            so it is really helpful if you can produce a small test case that
+            exhibits the problem. In this case, you would attach the build file
+            and any other files necessary to reproduce the problem, probably
+            packed together in an archive. If you can't produce a test case,
+            you should try to include a snippet from your build file and the
+            relevant sections from the verbose or debug output from Ant. Try
+            to include the header information where Ant states the version,
+            the OS and VM information, etc. As debug output is likely to be
+            very large, it's best to remove any output that is not
+            relevant. Once the bug is entered into the bug database, you
+            will be kept informed by email about progress on the bug. If
+            you receive email asking for further information, please try to
+            respond, as it will aid in the resolution of your bug.
+         </p>
+                                <p>
+            To create the bug report hit this

+        Asking for an Enhancement
+      </h4>
+                        <p>
+            Sometimes, you may find that Ant just doesn't do what you need it
+            to. It isn't a bug, as such, since Ant is working the way it is
+            supposed to work. Perhaps it is some additional functionality for
+            a task that hasn't been thought of yet, or maybe a completely new
+            task. For these situations, you will
+            want to raise an <i>enhancement request</i>. Enhancement requests
+            are managed using the same Apache Bug Database described above.
+            These are just a different type of bug report. If you look in the
+            bug database, you will see that one of the severity settings for
+            a bug is "Enhancement". Just fill the bug report in,
+            set the severity of the bug to "Enhancement", and
+            state in the description how you would like to have Ant enhanced.
+            Again, you should first check whether there are any existing
+            enhancment requests that cover your needs. If so, just add your
+            vote to these.
+         </p>

+        Fixing the Bug
+      </h4>
+                        <p>
+            If you aren't satisfied with just filing a bug report, you can
+            try to find the cause of the problem and provide a fix yourself.
+            The best way to do that is by working with the latest code from CVS.
+            Alternatively, you can work with the source code available from the
+            <a href="http://ant.apache.org/srcdownload.cgi">
+            source distributions</a>. If you
+            are going to tackle the problem at this level, you may want to
+            discuss some details first on the <code>dev</code>
+            mailing list. Once you have a fix for the problem, you may submit
+            the fix as a <i>patch</i> to either the
+            <code>dev</code> mailing
+            list, or enter the bug database as described above and attach the
+            patch to the bug report. Using the bug database has the advantage
+            of being able to track the progress of your patch.
+         </p>
+                                <p>
+            If you have a patch to submit and are sending it to the
+            <code>dev</code> mailing list,
+            prefix "[PATCH]"
+            to your message subject. Please include any relevant bug numbers.
+            Patch files should be created with the <code>-u</code>
+            option of the
+            <code>diff</code> or <code>cvs diff</code> command. For
+            example:<br /><br />
+            <font face="verdana" size="-1">
+            diff -u Javac.java.orig Javac.java &gt; javac.diffs<br /><br />
+            </font>
+            or, if you have source from CVS:<br /><br />
+            <font face="verdana" size="-1">
+            cvs diff -u Javac.java &gt; javac.diffs<br /><br />
+            </font>
+
+           Note: You should give your patch files meaningful names.
+           This makes it easier for developers who need to apply a number
+           of different patch files.

-                        <p>
-            By this time, you may have decided that there is an unreported
-            bug in Ant. You have a few choices at this point. You can send
-            an email to the <code>user</code> mailing list
-            to see if
-            others have encountered your issue and find out how they may
-            have worked around it. If after some discussion, you feel it
-            is time to create
-            a bug report, this is a simple operation in the bug database.
-            Please try to provide as much information as possible in order
-            to assist the developers in resolving the bug. Please try to enter
-            correct values for the various inputs when creating the bug, such
-            as which version of Ant you are running, and on which platform,
-            etc. Once the bug is created, you can also add attachments to
-            the bug report.

-            What information should you include in your bug report? The
-            easiest bugs to fix are those that are most easily reproducible,
-            so it is really helpful if you can produce a small test case that
-            exhibits the problem. In this case, you would attach the build file
-            and any other files necessary to reproduce the problem, probably
-            packed together in an archive. If you can't produce a test case,
-            you should try to include a snippet from your build file and the
-            relevant sections from the verbose or debug output from Ant. Try
-            to include the header information where Ant states the version,
-            the OS and VM information, etc. As debug output is likely to be
-            very large, it's best to remove any output that is not
-            relevant. Once the bug is entered into the bug database, you
-            will be kept informed by email about progress on the bug. If
-            you receive email asking for further information, please try to
-            respond, as it will aid in the resolution of your bug.

-      </h4>
-                        <p>
-            Sometimes, you may find that Ant just doesn't do what you need it
-            to. It isn't a bug, as such, since Ant is working the way it is
-            supposed to work. Perhaps it is some additional functionality for
-            a task that hasn't been thought of yet, or maybe a completely new
-            task. For these situations, you will
-            want to raise an <i>enhancement request</i>. Enhancement requests
-            are managed using the same Apache Bug Database described above.
-            These are just a different type of bug report. If you look in the
-            bug database, you will see that one of the severity settings for
-            a bug is "Enhancement". Just fill the bug report in,
-            set the severity of the bug to "Enhancement", and 
-            state in the description how you would like to have Ant enhanced.
-            Again, you should first check whether there are any existing
-            enhancment requests that cover your needs. If so, just add your
-            vote to these.
-         </p>

-                        <p>
-            If you aren't satisfied with just filing a bug report, you can
-            try to find the cause of the problem and provide a fix yourself.
-            The best way to do that is by working with the latest code from CVS.
-            Alternatively, you can work with the source code available from the
-            <a href="http://ant.apache.org/srcdownload.cgi">
-            source distributions</a>. If you
-            are going to tackle the problem at this level, you may want to
-            discuss some details first on the <code>dev</code>
-            mailing list. Once you have a fix for the problem, you may submit
-            the fix as a <i>patch</i> to either the
-            <code>dev</code> mailing
-            list, or enter the bug database as described above and attach the
-            patch to the bug report. Using the bug database has the advantage
-            of being able to track the progress of your patch.
-         </p>
                                 <p>
-            If you have a patch to submit and are sending it to the
-            <code>dev</code> mailing list,
-            prefix "[PATCH]"
-            to your message subject. Please include any relevant bug numbers.
-            Patch files should be created with the <code>-u</code>
-            option of the
-            <code>diff</code> or <code>cvs diff</code> command. For
-            example:<br /><br />
-            <font face="verdana" size="-1">
-            diff -u Javac.java.orig Javac.java &gt; javac.diffs<br /><br />
-            </font>
-            or, if you have source from CVS:<br /><br />
-            <font face="verdana" size="-1">
-            cvs diff -u Javac.java &gt; javac.diffs<br /><br />
-            </font>
-           
-           Note: You should give your patch files meaningful names. 
-           This makes it easier for developers who need to apply a number
-           of different patch files.

+      <subsection name="Filing a Bug Report">
+         <p>
+            Please read our document about <a href="problems.html">problems</a>
+            before deciding that there is an unreported
+            bug in Ant.
+        </p>
+        <p>
+            You have a few choices at this point. You can send
+            an email to the <code>user</code> mailing list
+            to see if
+            others have encountered your issue and find out how they may
+            have worked around it. If after some discussion, you feel it
+            is time to create
+            a bug report, this is a simple operation in the bug database.
+            Please try to provide as much information as possible in order
+            to assist the developers in resolving the bug. Please try to enter
+            correct values for the various inputs when creating the bug, such
+            as which version of Ant you are running, and on which platform,
+            etc. Once the bug is created, you can also add attachments to
+            the bug report.
+         </p>
+         <p>
+            What information should you include in your bug report? The
+            easiest bugs to fix are those that are most easily reproducible,
+            so it is really helpful if you can produce a small test case that
+            exhibits the problem. In this case, you would attach the build file
+            and any other files necessary to reproduce the problem, probably
+            packed together in an archive. If you can't produce a test case,
+            you should try to include a snippet from your build file and the
+            relevant sections from the verbose or debug output from Ant. Try
+            to include the header information where Ant states the version,
+            the OS and VM information, etc. As debug output is likely to be
+            very large, it's best to remove any output that is not
+            relevant. Once the bug is entered into the bug database, you
+            will be kept informed by email about progress on the bug. If
+            you receive email asking for further information, please try to
+            respond, as it will aid in the resolution of your bug.
+         </p>
+         <p>

+
+      <subsection name="Asking for an Enhancement">
+         <p>
+            Sometimes, you may find that Ant just doesn't do what you need it
+            to. It isn't a bug, as such, since Ant is working the way it is
+            supposed to work. Perhaps it is some additional functionality for
+            a task that hasn't been thought of yet, or maybe a completely new
+            task. For these situations, you will
+            want to raise an <i>enhancement request</i>. Enhancement requests
+            are managed using the same Apache Bug Database described above.
+            These are just a different type of bug report. If you look in the
+            bug database, you will see that one of the severity settings for
+            a bug is &quot;Enhancement&quot;. Just fill the bug report in,
+            set the severity of the bug to &quot;Enhancement&quot;, and
+            state in the description how you would like to have Ant enhanced.
+            Again, you should first check whether there are any existing
+            enhancment requests that cover your needs. If so, just add your
+            vote to these.
+         </p>

+      </subsection>
+
+      <subsection name="Fixing the Bug">
+         <p>
+            If you aren't satisfied with just filing a bug report, you can
+            try to find the cause of the problem and provide a fix yourself.
+            The best way to do that is by working with the latest code from CVS.
+            Alternatively, you can work with the source code available from the
+            <a href="http://ant.apache.org/srcdownload.cgi">
+            source distributions</a>. If you
+            are going to tackle the problem at this level, you may want to
+            discuss some details first on the <code>dev</code>
+            mailing list. Once you have a fix for the problem, you may submit
+            the fix as a <i>patch</i> to either the
+            <code>dev</code> mailing
+            list, or enter the bug database as described above and attach the
+            patch to the bug report. Using the bug database has the advantage
+            of being able to track the progress of your patch.
+         </p>
+         <p>
+            If you have a patch to submit and are sending it to the
+            <code>dev</code> mailing list,
+            prefix &quot;[PATCH]&quot;
+            to your message subject. Please include any relevant bug numbers.
+            Patch files should be created with the <code>-u</code>
+            option of the
+            <code>diff</code> or <code>cvs diff</code> command. For
+            example:<br></br><br></br>
+            <font face="verdana" size="-1">
+            diff -u Javac.java.orig Javac.java &gt; javac.diffs<br></br><br></br>
+            </font>
+            or, if you have source from CVS:<br></br><br></br>
+            <font face="verdana" size="-1">
+            cvs diff -u Javac.java &gt; javac.diffs<br></br><br></br>
+            </font>
+
+           Note: You should give your patch files meaningful names.
+           This makes it easier for developers who need to apply a number
+           of different patch files.

-            If the current nightly build doesn't resolve your problem, it is

-      <subsection name="Filing a Bug Report">
-         <p>
-            By this time, you may have decided that there is an unreported
-            bug in Ant. You have a few choices at this point. You can send
-            an email to the <code>user</code> mailing list
-            to see if
-            others have encountered your issue and find out how they may
-            have worked around it. If after some discussion, you feel it
-            is time to create
-            a bug report, this is a simple operation in the bug database.
-            Please try to provide as much information as possible in order
-            to assist the developers in resolving the bug. Please try to enter
-            correct values for the various inputs when creating the bug, such
-            as which version of Ant you are running, and on which platform,
-            etc. Once the bug is created, you can also add attachments to
-            the bug report. 
-         </p>
-         <p> 
-            What information should you include in your bug report? The
-            easiest bugs to fix are those that are most easily reproducible,
-            so it is really helpful if you can produce a small test case that
-            exhibits the problem. In this case, you would attach the build file
-            and any other files necessary to reproduce the problem, probably
-            packed together in an archive. If you can't produce a test case,
-            you should try to include a snippet from your build file and the
-            relevant sections from the verbose or debug output from Ant. Try
-            to include the header information where Ant states the version,
-            the OS and VM information, etc. As debug output is likely to be
-            very large, it's best to remove any output that is not
-            relevant. Once the bug is entered into the bug database, you
-            will be kept informed by email about progress on the bug. If
-            you receive email asking for further information, please try to
-            respond, as it will aid in the resolution of your bug.
-         </p>

-      <subsection name="Asking for an Enhancement">
-         <p>
-            Sometimes, you may find that Ant just doesn't do what you need it
-            to. It isn't a bug, as such, since Ant is working the way it is
-            supposed to work. Perhaps it is some additional functionality for
-            a task that hasn't been thought of yet, or maybe a completely new
-            task. For these situations, you will
-            want to raise an <i>enhancement request</i>. Enhancement requests
-            are managed using the same Apache Bug Database described above.
-            These are just a different type of bug report. If you look in the
-            bug database, you will see that one of the severity settings for
-            a bug is &quot;Enhancement&quot;. Just fill the bug report in,
-            set the severity of the bug to &quot;Enhancement&quot;, and 
-            state in the description how you would like to have Ant enhanced.
-            Again, you should first check whether there are any existing
-            enhancment requests that cover your needs. If so, just add your
-            vote to these.
-         </p>
-      </subsection>
-      
-      <subsection name="Fixing the Bug">
-         <p>
-            If you aren't satisfied with just filing a bug report, you can
-            try to find the cause of the problem and provide a fix yourself.
-            The best way to do that is by working with the latest code from CVS.
-            Alternatively, you can work with the source code available from the
-            <a href="http://ant.apache.org/srcdownload.cgi">
-            source distributions</a>. If you
-            are going to tackle the problem at this level, you may want to
-            discuss some details first on the <code>dev</code>
-            mailing list. Once you have a fix for the problem, you may submit
-            the fix as a <i>patch</i> to either the
-            <code>dev</code> mailing
-            list, or enter the bug database as described above and attach the
-            patch to the bug report. Using the bug database has the advantage
-            of being able to track the progress of your patch.
-         </p>
-         <p>
-            If you have a patch to submit and are sending it to the
-            <code>dev</code> mailing list,
-            prefix &quot;[PATCH]&quot;
-            to your message subject. Please include any relevant bug numbers.
-            Patch files should be created with the <code>-u</code>
-            option of the
-            <code>diff</code> or <code>cvs diff</code> command. For
-            example:<br></br><br></br>
-            <font face="verdana" size="-1">
-            diff -u Javac.java.orig Javac.java &gt; javac.diffs<br></br><br></br>
-            </font>
-            or, if you have source from CVS:<br></br><br></br>
-            <font face="verdana" size="-1">
-            cvs diff -u Javac.java &gt; javac.diffs<br></br><br></br>
-            </font>
-           
-           Note: You should give your patch files meaningful names. 
-           This makes it easier for developers who need to apply a number
-           of different patch files.
