I am using Tidy from NoteTabPro. I find the tidy program is taking away good
code. Here is an example of code which works and as far as I can see is
correct.

    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
standby="Loading BYO flash..." width="100%" height="100%">
    <div class="txtcnt">
    <h3>Your browser does not support macromedia flash.<br />
    You shall not see this introduction.<br />
    Select <a href="audiophile.htm">home</a> to enter this web site.</h3>
    </div>
        <param name="movie" value="./flash/BYO.swf" />
        <param name="quality" value="high" />
      </object>

When I run tidy on it I get this error message:

        line 29 column 9 - Warning: discarding unexpected param
        line 30 column 9 - Warning: discarding unexpected param

The removal of the param lines yields a non-functioning page. I have similar
experiences with Java script which does not survive a tidy up.
