no - sometimes it logs problems with nesting in the trace file,
but I don't see it with this example.

Mostly I use tidy in a filter that makes the messages easy to step
through with vile's error-finder:

# patterns like
#       line 2267 column 1 - Warning: trimming empty <dt>
for i in $*
tidy -e $i 2>&1 | egrep '^line ' |sed -e 's%^line %'$i':%' -e 's% column 

/tmp/foo.html:1:1: - Warning: missing <!DOCTYPE> declaration
/tmp/foo.html:1:1: - Warning: inserting implicit <body>
/tmp/foo.html:1:5: - Warning: missing </b> before </p>
/tmp/foo.html:1:17: - Warning: inserting implicit <b>
/tmp/foo.html:1:1: - Warning: inserting missing 'title' element
/tmp/foo.html:1:5: - Warning: trimming empty <b>
/tmp/foo.html:1:1: - Warning: trimming empty <p>
/tmp/foo.html:1:17: - Warning: trimming empty <b>

(thinking about it, I should quote the "$i" - but hadn't changed the
script since I wrote it in 2003...)
