    So, I’m thinking it would be cool to write the function html_print(); HTML print would basically be: function html_print($html){
    global $doc_html;
    $doc_html .= $html;

    Then, at the end of the page, one could do echo html_tidy($doc_html); This would mean all the php generated html would be formatted nicely. Does that sound like a good idea to anyone else?

    The default function arguments would produce an error since tidy expects a boolean value, but you’re giving a string. The first line should be like so:

    function html_tidy( $input_html, $indent = TRUE,
                                                   $no_body_tags = TRUE, $fix = TRUE ) {

    Other than that, very good suggestion. :-)

    $function html_tidy( $input_file, $indent = true, $no_body_tags = false, $fix = true ) {
    $tidy = new tidy;
    //config is from
    $config = array( ‘indent’ => $indent,
    ‘output-html’ => true,
    ‘wrap-attributes’ => false,
    ‘wrap’ => 120,
    ‘show-body-only’ => $no_body_tags
    $tidy->parseFile( $input_file, $config );
    $tidy->cleanRepair( );
    return tidy_get_output($tidy);
