Others have also pointed me to sgml, just, you know, if we want to 
understand the evolution of things.

Yes tidy did a lot of this for us, I didn't realize how much until I 
wrote my own html scanner. Ugh. 
I'm still making tweaks now and then. 
And yet, my scanner isn't much bigger than the interface code that 
connected to the tidy library, so there ya go.

Yes I think so. Thank you. 
xml as received through xhr is now parsed as xml, and that may make a 
difference to some websites. 
We also do some of the cdata parsing and representation, which tidy 
would not be able to do for us. 
So this is the right path.
