question about indenting in xah-html-mode

Emacs: Xah HTML Mode

thank you very much! actually, the answer is, just never indent html. :D but actually i should do something about it. one thing is simply goto xah-html-mode.el file, change this line to

define-derived-mode xah-html-mode fundamental-mode

to

define-derived-mode xah-html-mode mhtml-mode

there are some minor things i need to do.
