The problem is the attribute which Microsoft Access uses to store an XML 
fragment, this contains a large number of < and > characters, which makes tidy
assume there is a missing double quote in an attribute.

About the shortest possible test case is

<PARAM NAME="XMLData" VALUE="<xml xmlns:a=&quot;urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:access&quot;>&#13;&#10; 
<a:something></a:something><a:something></a:something></xml>'&quot;">

I have uploaded a Bug report and test case 500236 for this, the fix should be a
simple change to the heuristics in lexer.c.
