Well, that depends on what you consider slim and trim here, Tidy
corrects many things and is able to replace some markup like <font>
with "better" markup (or style sheets) but if you have a document
with tables nested 20 levels deep, Tidy will not change that, it
can't really. Nevertheless, it seems it should be not too difficult
to use Tidy to convert to XHTML and use a custom XSLT document to
strip or replace whatever you want.
