    Description: HTML syntax checker and reformatter
     Corrects markup in a way compliant with the latest standards, and
     optimal for the popular browsers.  It has a comprehensive knowledge
     of the attributes defined in the HTML 4.0 recommendation from W3C,
     and understands the US ASCII, ISO Latin-1, UTF-8 and the ISO 2022
     family of 7-bit encodings.  In the output:
      * HTML entity names for characters are used when appropriate.
      * Missing attribute quotes are added, and mismatched quotes found.
      * Tags lacking a terminating '>' are spotted.
      * Proprietary elements are recognized and reported as such.
      * The page is reformatted, from a choice of indentation styles.
     Tidy is a product of the World Wide Web Consortium.
