I'm wondering because of </code>...</code> error, Alan pointed out.

It would be good, to have a place at jdk repo for such cosmetic scripts (preferably for Unix +
Windows). anyone could contribute for enhancement + check the result at areas, one is working on,
e.g. to avoid unwanted changes like intentional line breaks outside the column 80 rule.
Joe, thanks for catching my change proposal.
Would like to see me as contributor :-)
I'm wondering, that you only found 14 classes to change.
IIRC, there are at least usages of old <code>...</code> tags in java.lang.Character +
Please refer the 'cosmetic' patches at  for additional javadoc + indentation + spacing corrections.
I think, it is good style, to have 2 spaces after period '.' in javadoc.
