This list and the tidy-develop list as well as the sourceforge.net bug
and patch tracking facilities can be used. http://tidy.sourceforge.net
has all the details.

You put the <li> elements outside of any <ul> or <ol> list item
container element, which is not allowed. Tidy corrects this by
putting the orphan list items in a <ul class="noindent"> element
(or simply a ul element in the latest version); this might indeed
not yield in the same visual effect, but if I remember the dis-
cussion correctly, this seemed an unimportant loss. You might be
able to restore the functionality using the cvs log and the
discussion around this issue in the bug tracker.
