saveHTML does not appear to format output. I assume it is supposed to because the manual entry for this function shows ->formatOutput = true

From the C code for the function:
        DOM_GET_OBJ(docp, id, xmlDocPtr, intern);

        htmlDocDumpMemory(docp, &mem, &size);

as opposed for the C function for saveHTMLFile which does appear to format output: 

   DOM_GET_OBJ(docp, id, xmlDocPtr, intern);

        /* encoding handled by property on doc */

    doc_props = dom_get_doc_props(intern->document);
    format = doc_props->formatoutput;
    bytes = htmlSaveFileFormat(file, docp, NULL, format);

Will fix once suitable api exists in libxml2 for this. currently only works when saving to file without duplicating all the routines needed.

Would libxml function htmlNodeDumpFormatOutput not suffice in this case?
 [2005-12-15 12:20 UTC]
not without re-creating the code for encoding and handling the output buffer and the function would then call htmlDocContentDumpFormatOutput. Not worth this just to disable the formatting for a string (right now it always formats output for saveHTML). i will just add the appropriate functionality in libxml2.

if you really need it disabled you can always write a custom stream handler that concats the output to a string and use it with saveHTMLFile.
