I think you need to download the source code and build and install the
library from it, the binaries just include the standalone statically
linked `tidy` command line utility. http://dev.int64.org/tidy.html has
the import library and DLLs is you are on Windows. For other platforms
like some linux distributions, using the standard package installer
might work, too, since many distributions provide tidylib in some way.
