Clean up Web pages with TIDY

By Ron Seybold, The 3000 NewsWire editor

The porting passion for e3000s remains hot, with more Posix-based tools arriving for the platform. Andreas Schmidt, author of our series on Ploticus/iX which began in September's issue, reported that he has ported "TIDY, a freeware tool to clean up Web pages for our beloved HP e3000. The homepage of Tidy/iX, the ported version for HP 3000's MPE/iX operating system, is available under http://www.hillschmidt.de/gbr/tidy.htm

Mark Wonsil, XML advocate and HP e3000 consultant at 4M Enterprises, noted: "Be forewarned:
TIDY is an instrument of the Devil, as it is a popular tool for helping Web developers move from the SGML application we call HTML to XHTML, the equivalent XML application. (See http://webreview.com/wr/pub/1999/07/16/feature/index.html for more info.)"
