xml output formatting

I am writing a DOM Document object to file using the TransformerFactory and Transformer classes.
It all works fine except for one thing. The output is one big block of text. I would like the xml to be indented properly.
I was looking at all the features and properties (and methods) of the factory and the transformer class but can't seem to find it.
It should be possible to write a formatted xml stream using a DOM object. Can anybody tell me how to do it?

Ah, I found it.
It was very simple but you just have to see it.
