Ah, that makes it a bit clearer. This is something I've wondered
about, too. I knew it wasn't a bug, but couldn't quite figure out
other explanations I've heard.

When you say, "avoid adding whitespace to the elements," I'm thinking
you mean "to the *content* (PCDATA) of the element" -- i.e., that if
Jade put a newline after the start tag of an element, a browser (or
other app) could read it as extra white space that the author didn't
intend to put there, whereas a newline inside the tag is ignored. Have 
I got it right?
