#340 ASP.NET tags support

Other (21)

When tags such as <asp:Content or <asp:label are encountered tidy throws an error such as

Error: <asp:content> is not recognized!
This document has errors that must be fixed before
using HTML Tidy to generate a tidied up version.

It would be really nice if tidy was working with those

    Thanks for the feature request... now so long ago... sorry for the delay...

    Tidy source has moved on to https://github.com/htacg/tidy-html5, site to http://www.html-tidy.org/

    Yes, tidy only supports W3C approved tags, but does have the options to add new tags - new-blocklevel-tags, new-empty-tags, new-inline-tags, or new-pre-tags... Adding these will get you over the error, and a tidied document will be created... Read API documentation...

    However, if you want to persue this, or find another tidy bug, or feature request, then please file an issue, together with sample html and config used, and if you find, fix, and test the feature in a tidy fork then you can issue a Pull Request. Always appreciated... thanks...

    Tidy needs your support...

    Meantime closing this here as out-of-date...
