Hello Dave.
First of all, thank you for placing such a beautiful tool like Tidy into the
public domain.
What disturbs me, though, is that the third script from the following
example, which is defined just outside the <body> of the document, is
silently moved inside.
Do you think that is ok?
I have a few webpages where I'd rather prefer the scripts stayed where I put
them to ensure they are executed after the body's onLoad event.

To enhance readability, could not a blank line be generated in front of the
opening <script> and after the closing </script> ?
And how about indenting a script block? Of course, tidying inside the block
is quite a different issue, which is not your concern.

Now here's the text:

INPUT:
-----------------
<html>
<head>
<title>Tidy Test</title>
<script type="text/javascript"> alert ("head") </script>
</head>

<body>
<h2>This is a test.</h2>

<h2>A script follows.</h2>
<script type="text/javascript"> alert ("body") </script>

<h2>That was our script.</h2>
</body>

<script type="text/javascript"> alert ("end") </script>

</html>
-----------------

OUTPUT:
-----------------
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN">

<html>
  <head>
    <title>Tidy Test</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
 alert ("head") 
</script>
  </head>

  <body>
    <h2>This is a test.</h2>

    <h2>A script follows.</h2>
<script type="text/javascript">
 alert ("body") 
</script>

    <h2>That was our script.</h2>
<script type="text/javascript">
 alert ("end") 
</script>
  </body>
</html>
