HTML Tidy May 10, 2000 9:22 AM   Subscribe

I realize I'm probably the last person on the web to have noticed this program, but HTML Tidy is pretty cool. It's an open source utility for cleaning up HTML: closing mismatched tags, etc. It seems that Haughey currently has to go in at times and close tags that posters leave open. I wonder if filtering entries through a program like this could save him from that chore. I'm sure this isn't the only utility of its type; does anyone know of others?

Oh, I figured out another hack - I could just put in closing tags at the end of each comment, like: </a>, </i>, etc...

If I'm not mistaken, that will actually confuse some browsers... Can't site a reference, just a vague memory.

HTML *really* needs push/pop environments like PS.

*cough, cough*
netscape does that
it also does that if you forget to close one
believe me, I didn't close off my font tags before I learned css, now I know better *shddder*
