So I took the time to install Tidy extension and wedge it into my code. Now
there is one thing that is killing me and breaking all my pages.
This is what I WANT the result to be:
                <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/templates/<?=
$layout_id ?>/css/styles.css" />
                <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/templates/<?=
$layout_id ?>/css/retina.css" media="only screen and
(-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2)" />
Which then 'renders' out to this normally without Tidy:
                <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="/templates/2/css/styles.css" />
                <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="/templates/2/css/retina.css" media="only screen and
(-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2)" />              
This is what Tidy does:
                <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
                <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="/templates/%3C?=%20$layout_id%20?%3E/css/retina.css" media="only
screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2)">
I found ['fix-uri' => false] which gets closer:
                <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="/templates/&lt;?= $layout_id ?&gt;/css/styles.css">
                <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="/templates/&lt;?= $layout_id ?&gt;/css/retina.css" media="only screen
and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2)">
I've tried about every option I can think of. What is the solution to make
it stop trying to be smarter than me and converting my < and > tags??

Anyone know of a good tool or even regex magic that I can call from PHP to
compress/minimize the giant string web page before I store it in the cache?

It's not quite as simple as stripping white space b/c obviously there are
spaces between attributes in tags that need to be preserved, but also in the
words/text on the page. I could strip out newlines I suppose, but then do I
run into any issues in other ways? In any event, it seems like someone would
have solved this by now before I go re-inventing the wheel.
