Note that for Tidy an error means it cannot parse the document at all,
you get warnings for anything else. That the rendering is different may
be caused by various things, for example, Tidy might have added a <!DOC-
TYPE> and some browsers change the rendering depending on that. There is
no way to let Tidy only change the indentation.
