Hi

It doesn't always find errors like:

1) Missing end tags:

<tr class="findForm">
<td colspan="3" class="findForm">
<form action="http://search.freefind.com/find.html" method="get"
target="_self" class="findForm">
<input type="hidden" name="id" size="-1" value="24236011" />
<input type="hidden" name="pid" size="-1" value="r" /> 
<input type="hidden" name="mode" size="-1" value="ALL" /> 
<input type="hidden" name="n" value="0" /> 
<input type="text" class="query" name="query" size="8" title="Write here
searched words"
onmouseover="ajastin_pois();MM_showHideLayers('allSites','','hide','Generic'
,'','hide','GenericPreface','','hide','GenericAdvises','','hide','MainPages'
,'','hide','Appendixes','','hide','AppendixesStandards','','hide','Proposals
','','hide','Practising','','hide');" />
<a href="#" class="find" title="Start the free word search!"><input
type="submit" class="find" value="Find!" /></a>
<a href="#" class="siteMap" title="Find my pages by using the site map"
onmouseover="ajastin_pois();MM_showHideLayers('allSites','','hide','Generic'
,'','hide','GenericPreface','','hide','GenericAdvises','','hide','MainPages'
,'','hide','Appendixes','','hide','AppendixesStandards','','hide','Proposals
','','hide','Practising','','hide')"><input type="submit" class="siteMap"
name="sitemap" value="Site map" /></a></form>
</tr>

Missing </td>

2) It should complain about repeated id values.

If I thing carefully

<!--

... document.writeln(\<'+'!--')}

Cause nested comments, which official validators find.

IF I write

... document.writeln(\<'+'!\-\-')} no problems

3) It doesn't find errors like 
<a" href="../

4) It doesn't really convert documents into XHTML, because it doesn't
convert STANDARD attribute values into lower case (for example
align="Center" or align="CENTER" are invalid).

Indeed I don't have resently updated my HTML Tidy but at least my versions
has much bugs.
