    Hi, I am looking for a tool that cleans up my XHTML and indents and formats it correctly. I have tried HTML TIDY and Simple Tidy, but they still have their problems. Does anyone know of a tool that could help me?

    http://validator.w3.org/ can tell you of any problems to make it easier to manually clean it up :)

    Every time I edit something I always run it through the validator to see if I miss something.

    Well, its not that there are any problems with the code, its just that the code itself is somewhat messy. Im looking for something that cleans up the code to make it look better and to be easier to read.

    If the page source for that site uses "html trim" then how exactly does it makes the code pretty? The page source for that site is all clumped together, looks horrible.
