Clean up your Web pages with HTML TIDY

HTML Tidy Library Project

Charlie's Tidy Add-ons, including a Perl Wrapper

HTML tidy, using XML::LibXML


Demoronizer - A perl script to sanitize Microsoft's HTML

Demoronizer - Correct Moronic Microsoft HTML

Word HTML 2 Formatting Objects

WH2FO is a Java application that processes an HTML output, created with Word 2000, and transforms it into an XML content file and an XSL stylesheet file. From these files, a standard XSLT processor may be used to obtain a file containing only XSL-FO markup. You can also apply a stylesheet that converts the XML back into HTML discarding all the extra markup added by Word. Using an XSL-FO renderer, such as FOP, you can also render your document into PDF.


GrandFather's PerlMonks Editor - on CPAN:


HTML::Parser has several example programs, such as which might be helpful - free office suite and MSOffice alternative

Use OpenOffice to save in HTML format. OpenOffice creates much cleaner HTML, and the resulting file may still be run through HTML Tidy or a script such as

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
