Re: Tidy weirdness
- Hello John,
You could consider to use the "Office 2000 HTML Filter 2.0" first.
It strips the original XML document into a more readable/editable
From that page:
"The Office HTML Filter is a tool you can use to remove
Office-specific markup tags embedded in Office 2000 documents saved
as Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). When you create an HTML
document in Office 2000, Office-specific markup tags are embedded in
it. These tags help "round-trip" the document for editing purposes.
For example, if you create the document in Word 2000 and save it as
HTML, the code embedded in the document allows you to re-open the
document in Word 2000 and use the same features you originally used
to create the page.
Once you have completed editing an HTML document in Word 2000 or
Excel 2000, you can use the Office HTML Filter to remove the
Office-specific markup tags from the final copy of the HTML

- Hello, All:
I'm new to the list but couldn't resist putting in my $0.02. I get
the same weird select-all behavior from Tidy on HTML I've typed
myself, so I doubt if it's anything to do with W2K.
Unfortunately, I don't know what causes it, but I know one sure-fire
cure: reboot! :-P
