FormattingOption class

The formatting is accomplished through a separate java class called fitnesse.runner.FormattingOption. The FormattingOption class takes the raw Result format data and sends it back to FitNesse along with a few parameters. FitNesse will perform the formatting return the formatted data. The data is then stored in a file. HTML and XML are the supported formats.

This architectures was chosen to reduce the amount of rework needed in alternate implementations of FIT. A TestRunner need only run the tests and save the results in a Result format. The FormattingOption program can be invoked alone to perform the additional formatting.
Also, it allow one to archive results in the Result format and decide at a later time which format should be used if any.
