Thank you, Allan. I just tried your suggestion and it produced the same
error.
(if it didn't, it would have been too easy... ;-))

I believe this is a Tidy bug - unless I'm told that I did something
wrong in my config file.

Thanks again,
Daniel

Daniel;

Tidy might be detecting an anchor (<A...>) in the middle of your
javascript component.

Try adding a space:

<    var i,j=doc.MM_p.length,
<        a=preload.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
---
>    var i,j=doc.MM_p.length,

If this is true, then Tidy needs to learn better how to scipt these
components.
