BBtidy : LUSENET : web authoring : One Thread

John, (or anyone else checking this who might know the answer) can you explain how to use BBtidy. What are you suppose to do with the err. and out pages it produces for you. I want to use it, I just am not quite sure what to do with the info it spits back to me.

I'll assume you're using the Mac version.

The err page is a list of things wrong with the page. Depending on how you have it set up, it will be reporting the problems with your page and/or the corrections it has made.

The .out page is the revised (corrected version) of page you've tidy'ed. This is so your work is not overwritten. If you want, you can check the "write back to window" box in the Tidy window and it will just overwrite your file.
