I just thought about creating a HtmlTidy-Task based on JTidy. I took a look at 
JTidy's source. It looks extremely ugly. It looks like what it is: a 
conversion from a tool written in a non-object oriented programming language. 
The author has done a really great job at conversion to Java, but it's still 
Some files have several thousand lines of code.
That's too untypical for Java to me.
This project definitely needs some refactoring before someone writes an Ant 
task for it.
And probably it's not up-to-date compared with the original tidy.
