Can anyone recommend a Windows program with the already-configured
ability to do what BBEdit's "Gentle Hierarchical" formatting option
does?  I'm trying to clean up some HTML files on a PC, but I usually do
my work on a Mac.

If I remember right, BBEdit's Formatting tool is based on Dave Raggett's
"HTML Tidy". You can find it here:


One of the downloads mentioned there is a Win32 GUI, although I don't know
about any details concerning that - whether it's one-at-a-time or batch
mode, etc.

Thanks for the pointer.  I've tried playing around with the various
Windows options, but Tidy is insistent on "fixing" the code.  All I
want is a quick indenting pass, and then I'll do the fixes manually.
I've tried setting all of the options that involve adding to the
existing code, but it seems there are things I can't turn off
(different things in different programs).

BBEdit's "Gentle Hierarchical" formatting option recognizes tags for
indenting purposes, but it treats the file as text, not HTML and
doesn't rewrite anything.
