Brilliant! Finally something worthwhile on my Services menu. I feel like I've been able to upgrade Coda to include a HTML formatter without having to wait for a new release. Note that you really need to create a TidyService.conf file in your home directory to get the most out of this service, the defaults for Tidy aren't that interesting.
If selected markup contains multibyte characters such as Japanese characters, Tidy Service won't work at all. It's too bad...
Easy to use, fast and convenient. Especially useful for converting long links full of special characters to valid HTML 4.01 transitional. Plus, free is delicious.
Very handy. Especially for converting html markup to xhtml in a snap. Would love an option to *not* include the meta tag it automatically inserts in the head of your document after parsing. Which...I don't believe is the fault of this developer but of the original Tidy source code. Could be wrong.
You can create a file in your home directory called 'TidyService.conf' which can hold all kinds of configurations. This is mentioned on the TidyService developer's site. The Tidy META tag can be omitted by adding the line
to this file.
See http://tidy.sourceforge.net/docs/quickref.html for all possible configuration options (this link is also mentioned on the TidyService developer's site).
This and many other HTML Tidy defaults can be modified by creating a file called "TidyService.conf" in your home directory. Add the option "tidy-mark: no" to suppress the HTML Tidy meta tag. For a complete list of options, visit
