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

When given a legal HTML 3.2 file, Tidy reports the content to be "HTML
proprietary."  For example, this text, which validates at the W3C site:

  <title>Valid HTML 3.2</title>  <body>

...is reported as "HTML proprietary".  The cause is the definition of the
HTML 3.2 doctype string at line 60 of lexer.c:

  {"HTML 3.2", "XHTML 1.0 Transitional", voyager_loose, VERS_HTML32},

However, the proper doctype string should be:

  {"HTML 3.2 Final", "XHTML 1.0 Transitional", voyager_loose, VERS_HTML32},

...according to the HTML 3.2 specification at http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-
