Bug Report [2000 August 04 release]

From: <salvage@plethora.net>

Message-Id: <200101181521.f0IFLgL26878@halo.plethora.net>

I'm afraid that tidy is not handling nested <q>s properly.

Sample:
<q>So then I said to him, <q>don't go there.</q></q>
is turned into
<q>So then I said to him,</q> don't go there.

The results when both <q>s occur inside other spans are particulary confused.

"...and so the moral of the story is: Always make backups."
"But that was the moral last night, and the night before that too!"
