TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I found the following on an ancillary page with the Tidy installer:
If you aren't comfortable with the command line you can try out HTMLTrim
or TidyUI. If you want a full web IDE tsWebEditor and TopStyle Pro both
have Tidy integrated in them.
I have used TopStyle Pro in the past for my cascading style sheets
(can't recommend it highly enough), so I will go and grab a copy of that
and try it.
Thanks for the tip.
