Depends on your operating system, for example (assuming you want to
modify the files in place, backup your files first)


	find /intranet/site -name '*.htm*' -exec tidy -m -additional-parameters
{} \;

Windows NT:

	cd \intranet\site
	for /r %f in (*.htm*) do tidy -m -additional-parameters %f

Windows 9x:

	Get a port of the Unix "find" command (Cygwin, GNU)
	Or, generate a list of files using dir /b *.htm* >list.bat
	Edit list.bat by prefixing every line with tidy -m

Terry provided instructions for MacOS already.
