Tidy is available from the W3C's website. hmm. having been fighting this tidy-then-transform system for the last day or two, can anyone tell me how they solve two (related) problems? a) as we know, authors scatter <h1>, <h3> etc across their document like pointers. my target DTD needs structured divisions. who has some good XSLT code to sort it out? I have evolved a dirtyish solution, involing disable-output-escaping, but if someone else has a reliable clean system, I'd love to see it b) HTML allows PCDATA practically anywhere, so far as I can see. so I get <h3>Hello</h3> I am the walrus where my target DTD wants something more like <h3>Hello</h3> <p>I am the walrus How do others deal with this? sebastian XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
