Broken BASIC example code indentation

The code example indentation seems broken throughout the BASIC help pages: just two spaces, no sub-indentation for statements.

Confirmed on Debian Jessie, 32-bit, with:

This seems to be a regression from...

    fix validation errors by round-trip through helpauthoring extension
Comment 3 Christian Lohmaier 2016-06-16 11:35:23 UTC
nope, no regression. That string was a single string before already.

-<paragraph role="bascode" id="par_id3150400" xml-lang="en-US" oldref="4">Select Case condition Case expression Statement Block [Case expression2 Statement Block][Case Else] Statement Block End Select</paragraph>

+<paragraph id="par_id3150400" role="bascode" xml-lang="en-US">Select Case condition Case expression Statement Block [Case expression2 Statement Block][Case Else] Statement Block End Select</paragraph>

Reassigning to Olivier to decide what's the best time to fix it/whether to fix for 5.2 or not (next week is string freeze)
Comment 4 Christian Lohmaier 2016-06-16 11:42:21 UTC
sorry, looking closely I see the regression - should have looked at the actual sample below, that indeed loses the indent/did flatten it.

so bug in helpauthoring extension..

changing most of those should not affect translators, as they have localize="false" attribute already.
Comment 5 Caolán McNamara 2016-06-16 14:55:08 UTC
I'll take this for recovering the missing indent in the helpcontent repo, though it appears that the help extension has a bug here in causing the indent to go away in the first place which I won't personally address
