Hi,

I couldn't understand when and what is the usage of Jtidy (http://jtidy.sourceforge.net/) even after going through the project

Can someone helps me to understand? Also, what are the other alternatives instead of JTidy as don't think it is very active

Please advise.

Thanks

After reading the WikiPedia article Paul linked to, check out the TagSoup and NekoHTML projects; they do similar things, but neither is maintained any longer, either.

But the more important question is: why do you want to switch away from JTidy? Does it not do what you need done? Just because it's no longer maintained doesn't mean it's useless.

Jsoup is an alternative that is still actively being developed. And it has an easy to use API.
