Corrects markup in a way compliant with the latest standards, and
optimal for the popular browsers.  It has a comprehensive knowledge
of the attributes defined in the HTML 4.0 recommendation from W3C,
and understands the US ASCII, ISO Latin-1, UTF-8 and the ISO 2022
family of 7-bit encodings.  In the output:
* HTML entity names for characters are used when appropriate.
* Missing attribute quotes are added, and mismatched quotes found.
* Tags lacking a terminating '>' are spotted.
* Proprietary elements are recognized and reported as such.
* The page is reformatted, from a choice of indentation styles.
Tidy is a product of the World Wide Web Consortium.

tidy (20091223cvs-1.2ubuntu1.1) trusty-security; urgency=medium

tidy (20091223cvs-1.2) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* For some reasons 20091223cvs-1.1 always gets rejected, probably due to
the special character in Loics name, but the upload get's rejected even
if I fix the previous changelog entry.  So let's see if creating a new
one fixes the issue.

tidy (20091223cvs-1.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Apply patch by Loic Minier:
* New patch, 10format-warnings, fixes FTBFS with -Werror=format-security;
essentially calls to messageNode() declared printf-alike with a variable
fmt string, but no subsequent argument; the patch passes "%s" as format
and fmt as the only argument; this merely protects this class of calls,
but not the ones with e.g. always one argument or always two arguments.
Tested by running tidy on some text and HTML files; warnings still seem to
be output correctly; (Closes: #645300).
* Use CURDIR instead of CURDUR in rules.
* rules: only append to LD_LIBRARY_PATH, don't reset it, as fakeroot relies
on it.
* Set urgenceny to medium due to rc bug fix
