When processing the following fragment of a document, Tidy split
the content of an anchor in a way that breaks the expected
display result, on most browsers.

The input source:

  <a href="./webcv_en.htm">English</a> -
  <a href="./webcv_fr.htm">Français</a> -
  <a href="./webcv_fi.htm">Suomeksi</a>

Tidy's output:

<h3> <a href="./webcv_en.htm">English</a> - <a href="./webcv_fr.htm">
Français</a> - <a href="./webcv_fi.htm">Suomeksi</a></h3>

The faulty bit is on "Français" which gets separated from the
anchor's opening container, resulting in an additional white
space in the hyperlink on most browsers.

Btw, this is using the MiNT port of Tidy 13jan2000.
