Description Brion Vibber 2005-06-26 20:58:56 UTC
Tidy won't just leave line endings alone; if you disable wrapping it just stacks 
lines as long as they can go.

That's REALLY annoying, and breaks playing with white-space setting.
Comment 1 peter green 2005-06-26 21:01:31 UTC
i can't help but think that using tidy is a dirty hack and really mediawiki
should be able to generate valid xhtml without it.

Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2005-06-26 22:37:53 UTC
Yes, it is a dirty hack.

MediaWiki _mostly_ produces valid XHTML output by itself, but the fixing of badly nested 
tags etc is fairly sucky, and we're letting tidy do it for now until that gets rewritten to 
work fully correctly.
Comment 3 Chad H. 2008-11-01 02:51:49 UTC
Is this any better nowadays?
Comment 4 Siebrand Mazeland 2009-04-16 23:13:04 UTC
Product: From extensions to core (enabled through $wg*Tidy*).
Comment 5 Happy-melon 2010-05-24 19:40:54 UTC
Stealing this for a Tidy tracking bug... there are certainly plenty of issues to track!!  :D
Comment 6 MZMcBride 2013-09-25 22:55:28 UTC
Tidy sucks.
Comment 7 Erwin Dokter 2014-02-20 13:06:27 UTC
Tidy must die.
