Yes, it is, tidy that is, a very handy tool, I like it allot.

The tidy package is replaced, here is the output from yum update this night:

  kdewebdev               i386       6:3.5.3-0.1.fc4  updates-released 
9.4 M
      replacing  tidy.i386 0.99.0-4.20041214

There is a tidy binary in the kdewebdev package, I have not checked if 
it is the "real" tidy, or a variant of it. It would be better, IMHO, to 
let tidy be a package of its own, and set a dependency for tidy in 
kdewebdev, this not to demand a lot of dependencies for those who want 
tidy, but not kde or quanta.

I think that this would mean that tidy have to be moved from extra to 
core, as, if I remember correctly, packages in core may not have 
dependencies for packages in extra.

It is from Fedora Core 4 Extras.

I removed kdewebdev and the dependencies it installed and will install 
the cvs version of tidy, this as I have no need for the dependencies 
installed by the update/replacement of tidy package. I have that 
arrangement on my FC5 systems.

I will check my FC5 system to see if tidy is replaced with kdewebdev 
also on that system when I get home from work.
