Hi, JTidy is currently based on some very old tidy code, and has a bunch of
bugs. I've just joined the project and my plan is to bring it up to the
latest tidy code and make various other enhancements.
So until I (or somebody else) manage to do that, you can expect different
results in many cases. One important question is whether the results from
one (or both?) of the libraries are wrong.
