The right combination would probably be

  new-blocklevel-tags: asp:calendar \
                  todaydaystyle \
                  selectorstyle \
                  selecteddaystyle \
                  weekenddaystyle \
                  titlestyle \
                  othermonthdaystyle \
                  dayheaderstyle \
                  nextprevstyle

Using this and -i you would result (using latest CVS sources, note

        <nextprevstyle verticalalign="Bottom"></nextprevstyle>
  
        <dayheaderstyle font-size="7pt" font-bold="True"
                        backcolor="#CCCCCC"></dayheaderstyle>
  
        <selecteddaystyle font-bold="True" forecolor="White"
                          backcolor="#666666"></selecteddaystyle>
  
        <titlestyle font-bold="True" bordercolor="Black"
                    backcolor="#999999"></titlestyle>
  
        <weekenddaystyle backcolor="#FFFFCC"></weekenddaystyle>
  
        <othermonthdaystyle forecolor="#808080"></othermonthdaystyle>
      </asp:calendar>
    </form>
  </body>
  </html>

This is friendly speaking not entirely accurate but it should at least
work.

Tidy does not output a new document if it encounters fatal errors and
unknown elements constitute fatal errors.
