I just tried Tidy for the first time - on Windows XP SP2.  I used the
'install' download.  Two issues:


I used it on a file created with vi under cygwin (attached).  Many
warnings.  Here are the issues:


1.  Using the Windows cmd window:


The command line

C:\...>tidy -f warnings.txt -I index.html -o tidy.html

Did not create, or write to, the file tidy.html.  I only got this for

C:\...>tidy -f warnings.txt -l index.html >tidy.html.


2. Once the warnings were fixed, the first line was changed from:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">


This change caused IE6.0 to render the page in a larger typeface!  I
checked by simply inserting the original first line in the file, and got
back my desired type face.  What's the difference?
