Hi Frank,

one item on tidy's todo list (follow link from tidy page) is 
- sort attributes in canonical order
It makes sense to takle your problem in combination with this
task. BTW: what should be the default when the attribute values are
contradictory (e.g. <foo align="right" align="center">) Take the first -
get rid of both or quit with error?
