  Description     : Python wrapper for HTML Tidy (tidylib)

 PyTidyLib is a Python package that wraps the HTML Tidy library. This
 allows you, from Python code, to “fix” invalid (X)HTML markup. Some
 of the library’s  many capabilities include:

  * Clean up unclosed tags and unescaped characters such as ampersands
  * Output HTML 4 or XHTML, strict or transitional, and add missing
  * Convert named entities to numeric entities, which can then be used
    in XML documents without an HTML doctype.
  * Clean up HTML from programs such as Word (to an extent)
  * Indent the output, including proper (i.e. no) indenting for pre
    elements, which some (X)HTML indenting code overlooks.
