Tidy is not capable of doing this; Tidy has essentially two parsing
modes, one for HTML and one for XML. The XML parser can handle your
myxmltag but cannot handle HTML elements, at least not if you forgot
to close some elements or have similar errors. The HTML parser cannot
handle myxmltag, unless you declare it using the --new-*-tags options,
but most likely those won't do what you want.
