Subject: Re: [security-services] CD prep tips for other editors

additional tips

1) After saving as HTML from Open Office, close OO before you try to 
process the saved HTML with Tidy.

Tidy can't take it as input if still loaded in OO.

2) an XHTML 'warning' is not the same as an 'error' - this is critical 
to remember :-)
