WebObjects tags

Hi -

I'm trying to use Tidy to clean the HTML that the WebObjects builder 
tool generates.    WebObjects only has a single added element to the 
HTML syntax which is: <webobject />

But, there are many instances where a <webobject /> tag wraps a 
<tr><td></td></tr> set of tags in a table to repeat through a list of 
elements to generate a table.

Here's an example:

<html>
   <head>
     <title>
       Tidy Test
     </title>
   </head>
   <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
   <div>
     <table width="75%">
       <webobject name="DataItemRepitition">
       <tr>
         <td>
           <webobject name="DataItem" />
         </td>
       </tr>
	  </webobject>
     </table>
	</div>
   </body>
</html>


With the following Tidy config data:

new-inline-tags: webobject
output-xhtml: true
doctype: strict
indent: yes
write-back: true
tidy-mark: false
show-warnings: false
quiet: true
wrap: 0

Tidy converts this to the following:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
     "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
   <head>
     <meta name="generator" content="WebObjects 5.2" />
     <title>
       Untitled
     </title>
   </head>
   <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
     <div>
       <webobject name="DataItemRepitition"></webobject>
       <table width="75%">
         <tr>
           <td>
             <webobject name="DataItemRepitition"><webobject 
name="DataItem"></webobject></webobject>
           </td>
         </tr>
       </table>
     </div>
   </body>
</html>


I saw in the documentation somewhere that what I'm trying to do may not 
be possible but I'm wondering if there is any workaround such as a way 
to "ignore" the <webobjects> tags possibly?   I've tried all the 
different new-* tags but they all had the problems in my tests.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Mike
