Yes, tidy works *great* - I have yet to find an error in converting
html pages to xhtml. I have converted pages with tidy that have 20-30 
"bad" html lines wheb viewed in lon-capa. The conversion is flawless, 
with no errors reported by lon-capa after the conversion. The only 
thing I need to do before the conversion is to delete the allow tags.
