I noticed the following on your "Notes on Pending Work" web page:

"Omri Traub would like an option to wrap the contents of style and
script elements in CDATA marked sections when converting to XHTML."

I need the same support since validating XML parsers reject the
currently produced Tidy output when a script contains && for example.

I don't have a c compiler.  However, I've changed the java and it works
for me.  The changes in the c code would look like this:

In pprint.c, function PPrintTree, I've changed the code from this:

        else if (node->tag == tag_style || node->tag == tag_script)
        {
            PCondFlushLine(fout, indent);

            indent = 0;
            PCondFlushLine(fout, indent);
            PPrintTag(lexer, fout, mode, indent, node);
            PFlushLine(fout, indent);

            for (content = node->content;
                    content != null;
                    content = content->next)
                PPrintTree(fout, (mode | PREFORMATTED | NOWRAP |CDATA),
indent, lexer, content);

            PCondFlushLine(fout, indent);
            PPrintEndTag(fout, mode, indent, node);
            PFlushLine(fout, indent);

            if (IndentContent == no && node->next != null)
                PFlushLine(fout, indent);
        }

to this:

        else if (node->tag == tag_style || node->tag == tag_script)
        {
            PCondFlushLine(fout, indent);

            indent = 0;
            /*** not sure why this is here is it is immediately
preceeded by
                 PCondFlushLine
            PCondFlushLine(fout, indent);   *****/
            PPrintTag(lexer, fout, mode, indent, node);
            PFlushLine(fout, indent);

        /** start newly inserted code **/

            if (xHTML) {
              savewraplen = wraplen;
              wraplen = 0xFFFFFF;   /* disable wrapping */
              AddC('<', linelen++);
              AddC('!', linelen++);
              AddC('[', linelen++);
              AddC('C', linelen++);
              AddC('D', linelen++);
              AddC('A', linelen++);
              AddC('T', linelen++);
              AddC('A', linelen++);
              AddC('[', linelen++);
              PCondFlushLine(fout, indent);
              wraplen = savewraplen;
            }

        /** end newly inserted code **/

            for (content = node->content;
                    content != null;
                    content = content->next)
                PPrintTree(fout, (mode | PREFORMATTED | NOWRAP |CDATA),
indent, lexer, content);

            PCondFlushLine(fout, indent);

        /** start newly inserted code **/

            if (xHTML) {
              savewraplen = wraplen;
              wraplen = 0xFFFFFF;   /* disable wrapping */
              AddC(']', linelen++);
              AddC(']', linelen++);
              AddC('>', linelen++);
              PCondFlushLine(fout, indent);
              wraplen = savewraplen;
            }

        /** end newly inserted code **/

            PPrintEndTag(fout, mode, indent, node);
            PFlushLine(fout, indent);

            if (IndentContent == no && node->next != null)
                PFlushLine(fout, indent);
        }

Also, I added 

	uint savewraplen;

up at the top of the PPrintTree function, after 

	Node *content, *last;

I'm not sure if this is the best way to report suggested code changes to
you but, if there is some alternative procedure, I apologize for
cluttering up the mailing list and will resubmit.
