(It would be good if you send you send new mails using the New Mail
feature of your mail client rather than using Reply To and changing
the subject line, etc)

The "looks like" feature only considers the elements and attributes
you use, so, if you only use HTML 3.2 features, Tidy will state that
the document looks like HTML 3.2 regardless of errors it may have
found and complained about.

If there are any other problems, note that the december 2002 version
is quite outdated, you should upgrade to a more recent version.
