Dear Larry:

Thank you so much for your quick response to my question regarding
ColdFusion and Tidy.

I tested your configuration file against a simple ColdFusion script
named "udf.cfm", as follows:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<cfscript>
/* takes off leading zero from numeric nsc numbers: RegExp will be better */
function NscNumberFormat(nsc) {
formatedNsc = nsc;
	if (IsNumeric(nsc)) {				
	while (Find("0", formatedNsc) eq "1") {
			formatedNsc = Mid(formatedNsc, 2, Len(formatedNsc) - 1);	
		}
	}
	return formatedNsc;
}
</cfscript>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The configuration file named "my_config" is as follows:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Tidy configuration file for handling ColdFusion tags.
#   Based on the file supplied by Larry W. Virden <mailto:lvirden@cas.org>

# ???The tag names have to be changed to lower case???

# string: declare new block-level tags
new-blocklevel-tags:  cfform, cfgrid, cfhttp, cfif, cflock, cfloop, cfoutput, cfquery, cfreport, cfscript, cfselect, cfswitch, cfcase, cfdefaultcase, cftable, cftransaction, cftree, cftry, cfcatch

# string: declare new empty inline tags
new-empty-tags:

# string: declare new non-empty inline tags
new-inline-tags: cfabort, cfapplet, cfapplication, cfassociate, cfauthenticate, cfbreak, cfcache, cfcol, cfcollection, cfcontent, cfcookie, cfdirectory, cfelse, cfelseif, cferror, cfexit, cffile, cfftp, cfgridcolumn, cfgridrow, cfgridupdate, cfheader, cfhtmlhead, cfhttpparam, cfinclude, cfindex, cfinput, cfinsert, cfldap, cflocation, cfmail, cfmodule, cfobject, cfparam, cfpop, cfprocparam, cfprocresult, cfregistry, cfschedule, cfsearch, cfset, cfsetting, cfslider, cfstoredproc, cftextinput, cfthrow, cftreeitem, cfupdate, cfwddx
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note that I have to convert the CF tag names to lower case, otherwise,
"tidy" gives *errors* for the above "udf.cfm" file.

I run tidy (for Windows released on 1st August 2004) as follows:
  tidy -i -c -config my_config -o udf_tidy.cfm udf.cfm

The output file "udf_tidy.cfm" is:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<html>
<head>
  <meta name="generator" content=
  "HTML Tidy for Windows (vers 1st August 2004), see www.w3.org">

  <title></title>
</head>

<body>
  <cfscript>/* takes off leading zero from numeric nsc numbers:
  RegExp will be better */ function NscNumberFormat(nsc) {
  formatedNsc = nsc; if (IsNumeric(nsc)) { while (Find("0",
  formatedNsc) eq "1") { formatedNsc = Mid(formatedNsc, 2,
  Len(formatedNsc) - 1); } } return formatedNsc; }</cfscript>
</body>
</html>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note that the cfscript block is now in a single line, also,
<html>/<head>/<body> tags were added --- it is no longer a pure ColdFusion
script that can be included directly into other .cfm files.

Now my question is: it is possible for tidy to pretty-print *only*
ColdFusion part (the <cfscript> block tag) without introducing HTML
house-keeping tags? Or when CF tags are combined with HTML as is often the
case, can the CF tags also be pretty-printed (instead of put into one
line) by tidy?

Many thanks for your help.

Xiang-Jun
