in reply to HTML tidy, using XML::LibXML

If you've got sloppy HTML that needs tidying up and XML::LibXML barfs on it, you can change that one-liner to the following three-liner:
my $parser = XML::LibXML->new(); $parser->recover(1); # Set recovery on error flag $parser->parse_html_string(join "", <>)->toStringHTML;
XML::LibXML can also parse SGML. Most people don't know that (probably sucky docs ;-)

    Don't know if it's accurate but the docs say that won't work-

    This switch (recover) will only work with XML data rather than HTML data.

    (Update, July 2010: this does work and has for at least a few years -- don't know if it was always the case; I should have tested back when I initially responded.)
