Can you elaborate a small example please, so I can better understand what you asked for?

Hi Adrian,

I think having the closing """ on a line by itself activates the indentation stripping feature. So if it was to change as you suggest then how would you turn off indentation stripping?

This would be consistent and less confusing to learn.

Can’t we make the indent algorithm work like this instead?
let string = """\↵
······content text↵
····</tag>""" // Indent starts with the first non space character

// result

··content text↵
The line where the closing delimiter is trims all space chapters and the indent for the whole multi-line string is starting at the point where the first non-space chapters is in that line.

What do you think?
