Only makes things more Xhtmly if you want it to, and doesn't actually "clean"
the code ala Dreamweaver style. Rather, it points you to the bad line and
suggests what to do to fix it. It's generated code validates well and there is a
ton of features in it, and the configurability satisfies the geek in me. Not
thrilled with it's search/find and replace features, go back to Arachnophilia
for that [arachnoid.com] or open up my copy of Dreamweaver.
Great editor for fixing/debugging HTML.
