You mean you are using it for HTML documents generated from DocBook 
documents? If you use it for DocBook documents you are abusing Tidy AFAIK.

Regarding problems with Tidy, I'd ask the Tidy people.

xmllint --format might work for you.


If you encounter issues with xmllint, report them at 
http://xmlsoft.org/bugs.html .

Alternatively, you could use a good XSLT processor such as Saxon; 
especially recent (XSLT 2) versions offer some useful options for the 
tasks you describe.

BTW: This type of topic is not really appropriate for
docbook@lists.oasis-open.org .

Please ask tool related questions on
http://docbook.org/wiki/moin.cgi/DocBookAppsMailingList ,
not on docbook@lists.oasis-open.org .
