When parsing with HtmlAgilityPack, remove whitespace and newlines.

asp.net c# html-agility-pack trim

Question

I tried to parse HTML with the HtmlAgilityPack in the following way:

HtmlDocument htmlDoc = new HtmlDocument();
htmlDoc.LoadHtml(xhtmlString);

Unfortunately the xhtmlString contains unnecessary whitespaces and newline characters, so the _text of htmlDoc now looks like this:

<html xmlns=\"http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml\">\n\t<head></head>\n\t<body>\n\n<p>Alle Auktionen<br /></p>\n\n\t</body>\n</html>

This is a problem for me when working with the child elements of the body.

What is the easiest way to remove these unnecessary characters?

Does the HtmlAgilityPack offer some kind of function for cleaning up HTML from newlines and tabs?

This is the document indentation and not unnecessary whitespaces and newline characters.
I cant see how this could be a problem but cant you just replace the special characteres such as "\t", "\n" ?

Doing a fast search i found this Html Agility Pack: make code look neat
Maybe setting up some properties to false can be helpful
