Yes, my understanding was that <code> just contains text, a snippet of
the source document around the error. For example, I had imagined that
the result document would contain...

<code>... foo bar &lt;font size="-2"&gt;baz&lt;/font&gt; whiz ...</code>

or something roughly like that.

Yeah Laura's email won't work anymore, she's no longer an intern.

The function you want is DOMUtils.getNodeLineNumber(Node). You can get
the line number within the original/tidied document by getting the
line number of a node, and subtracting the line number of  the
<docContent> node.

This will contain the original or tidied document -- it is fine to
report the line number relative to whichever one is appearing in the
moki document.
