php + html tidying

Hey folks,

I'm trying to find a command line program that will auto-indent a file 
with mixed html/php and point out some of the flaws in the html.

Here are some of the problems I'm running into:

Tidy insists on adding a doctype and <html><head>, etc. tags to a file 
but I use php commands to include headers that contain these. The option 
"show-body-only: yes" strips out all of my php tags.

Tidy will also change the indentation of <?php ?> tags.

Is it possible to run tidy in such a way that it will not add any tags 
that are not existing, clean up the html and leave the indentation of 
anything with <?php ?> alone? I have another script that does a nice 
enough job of the php code, but butchers the indentation of the html.

Any advise or help is much appreciated!
