I cannot reproduce this problem on tidy4aug00 (linux, default settings). 
The body tag is left untouched (except that the attribute names are 
converted to lowercase).

However, I suggest that (instead of using Macromedia Dreamweaver's built-in 
junk) you write a little external JavaScript (<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" 
TYPE="text/javascript" SRC="preload.js">).

No matter what problem your version of Tidy has with this piece of HTML, 
this would be the cleaner solution anyway.
