Yes, fine, that involves *no* change whatsoever in the semantics of
the document, so what is the problem?

From the HTML Tidy manual:
    wrap: number
	Sets the right margin for line wrapping.
	Tidy tries to wrap lines so that they do not exceed this length.
	The default is 66.
	Set wrap to zero if you do not want line wrapping.



	It seems to break the lines after the = character forcing us to manually or
	search and replace all the broken sections.
	
Again:  why is this a problem?
Any HTML-aware tool shouldn't even notice the difference.
