@ogolovanov thanks for the issue...

That tidy_test.html has errors so no html will be output... so your result is expected...

Add --force-output yes to your config, and you should get the something...

And hope the web site adopts a better generator of html web pages... It has no DOCTYPE, so tidy will choose html5... has lots of tivial warnings... still using legacy <table> elments, to get format... should use css... tidy does its best to render a clean document... only if you add --force-output yes...


Regards, Geoff.

Heh, thank you.
I was not expecting that problem because everything is ok with tidy 5.4.x, but not with 5.6.x+.
Do i need to set any other config options for bad formatted input html?
