Hi!
It seems that I should not use HTML Tidy on pages that containg
Javascript? Or am I misunderstanding something here?

(The HTML Tidy version that I'm using is "HTML Tidy for Windows (vers
1st August 2002)".

Thanks in advance,
Daniel


Here is the test case in question:

The original file (test1.htm):
------------------------------
<html>
<head>
<title>Test 1</title>

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
function preload() { //v3.0
 var doc=document; if(doc.images){ if(!doc.MM_p) doc.MM_p=new Array();
   var i,j=doc.MM_p.length,a=preload.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length;
i++)
   if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ doc.MM_p[j]=new Image;
doc.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}
}
//-->
</script>
</head>

<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"
background="bg.gif"
onLoad="preload('img1.gif','img2.gif','img3.gif','img4.gif','img5.gif','
img6.gif','img7.gif','img8.gif');">

</body>
</html>

HTML Tidy's output:
------------------------------
<html>
<head>
<meta name="generator" content="HTML Tidy for Windows (vers 1st August
2002), see www.w3.org">
<title>Test 1</title>

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
function preload() { //v3.0
 var doc=document; if(doc.images){ if(!doc.MM_p) doc.MM_p=new Array();
   var i,j=doc.MM_p.length,a=preload.arguments; for(i=0; i
</script>
</head>
<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"
background="bg.gif"
onload="preload('img1.gif','img2.gif','img3.gif','img4.gif','img5.gif','
img6.gif','img7.gif','img8.gif');">
</body>
</html>
