So I'm getting the new version of the MaxDB FAQ ready for production. We used Microsoft Word to create the document and manage corrections. And then I exported to HTML. Word did a terrific (note that the root word here is "terror") job of translating to HTML, and Tidy won't touch it unless I fix some issues manually.
So here I go.
Getting most recent build from cvs:
$ cd ~/src/
$ cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/tidy login
$ cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/tidy co tidy
Building said code:
$ cd tidy/build/gmake
ld: archive: ../../lib/libtidy.a has no table of contents, add one with ranlib(1) (can't load from it)
make: *** [../../bin/tidy] Error 1
$ ranlib ../../lib/libtidy.a
$ cd ../../bin
$ ./tidy -h
$ open ../htmldoc/faq.html
$ open http://tidy.sourceforge.net/docs/quickref.html
More after I eat some food.
