In that case, I misunderstood the meaning of 'Format' in the name 
xmlSaveFormatFileEnc(). The documentation says it will indent 
automatically, and I assumed that included adding text nodes. So you say I 
have to generate text nodes with spaces, which it will then use for 
indenting? I'll give that a shot.

  if there is already a text node in the children list, then libxml2
will not output any more text node to not break any possible element with
mixed contentmodel.

It seems like such a common task, though. Is there some functionality for 
creating such formatting anywhere in the library, or does anyone have it?

  That could be a way to make "formatting" without risking to break 
some existing document data.
