pdf export fails with the nowrap attibute

Robin Fernandes

Users are pasting HTML generated  by various apps into their docs and
then aren't able to render to pdf. I found that attempting to save a
document with the following content to pdf results in a 0 byte file:

  <td nowrap></td>

Looking at the log:
org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Attribute name "nowrap" associated with
an element type "td" must be followed by the ' = ' character.

I realise that nowrap is not valid xhtml, but I would have thought
that jTidy (which I believe you are using for the html -> xhtml
conversion) would map it to nowrap="nowrap" or style="white-Space:
nowrap;". Apparently not..

Can anyone suggest a workaround?
