Hello, would it be considered a legitimate usage of the online Tidy service
that is provided through w3.org to clean up dynamic pages that are
constantly refreshed?  For example, the following link leads to a webpage
that is updated every hour or so - if someone wanted to create an RSS feed
by scraping that page, they might run it through a service like Tidy at the
W3 site first for well formed html before formatting it into RSS.

http://www.w3.org/services/tidy?docAddr=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.superstoresearch.com%2Fnew

Or alternatively are there standalone scripts or components that can be
utilized that provide the same Tidy service but which can be run locally on
the server?  Which would therefore not place any additional burdens on the
W3 servers.


Best regards,
