    I have tried to get a Tidy configuration that should suit the Swedish letters å, ä and ö, Å,Ä and Ö.
    Has not succeded - Usually I let the pages contain iso-8859-1 of course I could also try the utf-8.
    Tidy is ja a very useful tool but make problem for med with the mentioned letters:
    Normally I use the german version of your nice Programme.
    Are there a good solution for my problem?

      Hi,

      I'll be glad to help you with this. If you haven't yet, please try
      adding the following option to a custom Tidy configuration:

      output-encoding: raw

      Let me know if this doesn't work or isn't what you're looking for.

        Many thanks for your answer and proposal. I added the raw option and tested carefully.
        Very sorry to inform you thad I did not succeed to solve the problem.
        I would prefer to continue to work with iso-8859-1 encoding, because that is conform to my key board,
        and result in both a good looking page and a fully readable code page.
        The Tidy change (?) the Swedish letters ÅÄÖ åäö .. For example my name Ekström is written Ekstroumlm or worse.

        Examples:
        1. http://ejnar.se/aria.html
        'good looking'
        the same page after Tidy:
        2. http://ejnar.se/ari.htm
        'looks inhumane terrible'
        with utf-8 the same page and after Tidy:

        1. http://ejnar.se/aruu.htm 'no good result'

          Today I Think I have understand what I have done wrong. If I first mark that charset: utf-8 (instead of iso-8859-1) and then save the file with utf-8 encoding instead of the default setting at the editor's saving procedure.
          It is no so easy (bin 80) for me but I got help from a kind neighbor...
          Thank you for your efforts so far and Good Bye and merry Christmas to all good people from Stockholm. Ejnar Ekstr.

            Hi Ejnar,

            I had just looked at your file links and was about to reply :) I'm glad
            you have it working now with the help of your kind neighbor.

            If you prefer to use iso-8859-1 instead of utf-8, you can save the file
            in that encoding and then change the meta tag in your HTML file to help
            Tidy determine input encoding. But utf-8 might be a better solution in
            the long run.

            Merry Christmas to you as well. Hope you have a pleasant holiday season.

            Chami
