HTML allows you to place line breaks before or after the
"=" sign that separates attribute names from values.
Tidy takes advantage of this to flow the markup within
the window width since this reduces the need for horizontal
scrolling when editing the markup. Tidy has lots of options
for controlling the formatting, but it can't do everything.
Tidy works by creating a clean markup tree then pretty
printing it.
