The tidy-dev list is probably the right place.  Sorry if we didn't respond.

On the enclose-block-text issue, I am not highly familiar with the issue it
addresses - mixed content model support in block elements - but taking a
look at the text itself, it may be technically correct.  Basically, it has
enclosed all the otherwise unenclosed text nodes within a <p> ... </p> pair.
Agree, however, that the inserted <p> tags should probably usurp all content
of its parent.

<li><em>vacant</em> <strong>Feock (inc. Devoran)</strong>

<p>, <strong>Forrabury</strong>, <strong>Fowey</strong></p>

Should be

<li><p><em>vacant</em> <strong>Feock (inc. Devoran)</strong>
, <strong>Forrabury</strong>, <strong>Fowey</strong></p>

I.e. the opening <p> tag needs to be moved back to the beginning of the <li>
content.  Coming in the middle, as it does now, it renders strangely on the
browser because beginning a new paragraph starts on a new line.  Even at the
beginning, putting in <p> elements messes with the vertical spacing on <li>
elements.  Opinions?

On the spacing issue, I think we are essentially at a feature freeze for
current work and are trying to clear up bugs and couple remaining issues.
Can you enter a feature request on Source Forge?

take it easy,

Subject: enclose-block-text bug

[I originally sent this to the Tidy-dev list and got no response, so perhaps
that was the wrong place]

I tried out the enclose-block-text: yes option on the Sep 1 cut (Sep 15
build) of tidy [win32] with these strange results. It seems to be disturbed
by inline elements, only starting the <p> at the first raw text.

While I am here, I didn't see any response to Guillaume Rousse's query about
"spacing between siblings" [html-tidy@w3.org 9 Aug]. I would support the
call for an option to disable the generation of extra blank lines in the
output, or even suppress them entirely. There is "pretty print" and there is
