If your input document is HTML with some extra elements, you should not
specify this parameter. If it is just some custom XML format, there is
probably no way right now to get the formatting right. There are other
more suitable tools than Tidy to format XML documents. The Tidy bug
tracker (linked from http://tidy.sf.net) has a number of bugs filed on
XML pretty printing. They are unlikely to be addressed any time soon.
