the October 22nd version of tidy has a bug concerning long links (at
least in the default wrap=68 setting). I have
a code snipplet like
(<a href="verylongpath/file.html">foo</a>), where one does not want to
have whitespace between the brackets and foo. However when 
"verylongpath" is very long indeed, tidy will start a new line for
"foo</a>) and introduces whitespace thereby. This happens when
everything after "(<a href=" becomes longer than 75 characters. I think
this bug had occured before and was corrected with the July 26nd release
or so, but am not shure.

I realised this when an opening bracket suddenly appeared at the end of
a line in one of my browser windows. The exact codesnipplet I used was:
