Huh? two different tidy teams?

2. Re: CVS: yes, please make the tarballs, as at 41 years old, I am not
used to CVS :-(

3. Are you sure you still want to generate:
   content="HTML Tidy, see www.w3.org" didn't the address change.  by
   the way, can one turn off the ads if say, one needs to take the
   code on the space shuttle, and every byte counts.

4. By the way, did I mention this below

|We're comparing apples to oranges here.
|
|The HTML specs require that multiple adjacent whitespace characters be
|collapsed when *displaying* an HTML document, but they do not prohibit
|multiple adjacent whitespace characters in the source document.  In
|fact, I believe they collapse whitespace when displaying specifically
|so that it is OK to use extra whitespace in source documents for

|
|Therefore, there's no reason why Emacs needs to collapse extra
|whitespace when editing HTML, and indeed it shouldn't.

so please add a "whitespaces after periods" option, with values
1,2,3... or 0[?] meaning "don't mess with them".
