     My example is a (locally) formatted paragraph with text your in it 
which I believe was your original intention-- but you took a wrong turn 
and ended up with an empty/null paragraph instead.

Tidy won't touch this code because it's correct, so you'll retain the 
'usefull breakline' created by the default formatting for a Paragraph.

PS    I don't know what you code with, but a decent tool is Notepad++ ( 
http://notepad-plus-plus.org/ ).

Notepad++ is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") 
source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several 
languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by 
GPL License.

Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is written 
in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution 
speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as 
possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce 
the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC 
can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener 

     This runs fine on a 64bit machines: I have 64bit Win7 Ultimate w/ 12 
GB of memory and it runs great.

This is installed:

Version 0.2 (Unicode) Tidy2

Tidy2 is a HTML Tidy plugin, using tidy-html5 from W3C. Tidies up HTML 
code, can produce XHTML and insert missing tags, remove unneeded tags 
etc. Allows 3 configurations, so you can configure 3 different Tidy 
patterns for different uses (e.g. one HTML and one XHTML)
