Hi Dave,

I ran into problems with the latest version of "tidy" (26July1999):

When I try to tidy up the attached HTML file (MS Word 97 output...), tidy
gets caught in an infinite loop:

dsun178:analogic 226> tidy analogic.shtml.orig

Tidy (vers 26th July 1999) Parsing "analogic.shtml.orig"
line 9 column 33 - Warning: missing </font> before <p>

line 30 column 1 - Warning: discarding unexpected </font>
line 30 column 1 - Warning: discarding unexpected </font>
line 30 column 1 - Warning: discarding unexpected </font>

and so on, and so on, and so on, ad nauseum...

However, if I use tidy 15Apr1999 on the same file, it works.

This is the (global) configuration file I use:

indent: yes
indent-spaces: 2
wrap: 72
markup: yes
output-xml: no
input-xml: no
show-warnings: yes
quote-marks: yes
quote-nbsp: yes
break-before-br: no
smart-indent: yes
char-encoding: latin1


Unfortunately, I lack the time to investigate this further, but maybe you
know what's happening here.

Regards,

Thomas
