[jdom-interest] XMLOutputter

Has anyone used the XMLOutputter class without specifying any parameters and
found that the supposed default options are not enforced.?

When I specify the following:

	Document newDoc = new Document( elmRoot );

            XMLOutputter fmt = new XMLOutputter();
            fmt.output(newDoc, System.out);

My XML gets output all on one line, but when I change the second to last
line to:

            XMLOutputter fmt = new XMLOutputter("  ", true);

My XML gets output with the correct formatting (i.e. 2 space indent and new
line feeds on).
Shouldn't it print this way without having to specify the parameters?
