Nothing I can do about it other than try to fix docutils, and every
time I've reported that tidy complains about something docutils
generates the docutils people have told me that tidy is wrong. So, I
don't want to seem uncooperative or like I don't care about validity,
but I hope you'll understand when I say "be my guest and report the
problems to docutils if you think you know the HTML rules well
enough." I sure don't.
