[BUG] Warning column numbers incorrect

This report is for the Tidy version of 13th January 2000.

The column numbers reported by Tidy in warnings for unknown attributes are
incorrect.  For example, the following HTML:

  <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN">
  <html>
  <title>Column bugs</title>  <body>
  <p bogus="X" yoohoo="Y">Some text</p>  </html>

reports these warnings:

  line 6 column 1 - Warning: unknown attribute "yoohoo"
  line 6 column 1 - Warning: unknown attribute "bogus"

However, the column numbers should be 14 and 4, respectively.  I presume
but have not verified that "lexer->columns" is not being updated as
attributes are parsed in "lexer.c".
