I just discovered the Help/About in Tidy UI and it gives a different
author and a web site link (Charles Reitzel, http://tidy.sourceforge.net),
but uses the old HTML Tidy logo. I went to the website and while my
original question went unanswered, I did learn that Tidy UI is the latest
version of Dave Raggett’s legacy.

The site features TidyLib, but it isn’t clear. It starts out as if it
will explain what the program does, but mostly it seems to go on and on
about its developement and how to continue work on its developement. Is
TidyLib supposed to be simular to HTMLib by Steve LeHunte? I have been
trying to find a current version of that program also. I use both
programs from within my text editor, Boxer, to create and edit my HTML
web pages. HTMLib is called as context-sensitive help.

I finally accessed the help file for Tidy UI which is available only when
the user is online. I do not have 24/7 access to the internet and when I
do there are times when I am not online. It would be helpful to have Tidy
access a Help.HTML file in the directory on the hard drive where it is

  HTML Tidy does that automatically.
