(221/231) 3615200 - "indent [selected] lines" doesn't.

I have no idea what this action does, and only a vague idea of what it is supposed to do, but even so, it doesn't seem to work.

What action ? You mean indent lines in the edit menu ?

Yes. In an XML file, select a bunch of lines, and invoke "indent lines". Nothing happens.
If this is because XXX is not defined in the XML edit mode, there should be a message in the statusbar indicating that we need XXX to be defined in XML edit mode for this action to work.

I don't know what XXX means, but for an xml it is normal that it doesn't work, jEdit cannot indent xml files.

if I knew what XXX meant, I would fill it in too. But basically, I think there should be an informative message that explains why this action doesn't work on some modes.
