Maybe the key of the tidy problem is that these server side tidiers
don't date to be too Draconian, because then they would possibly damage
the content. Now if the tidy would happen right when the user pastes in
the HTML from the clipboard, then he would immediately see what's the
result, so the tidier could be much more brave in killing the frippery.
Also, then the content that was entered earlier couldn't be damaged by
the tidier (since only the just inserted content is tidied).

Anyway, are there any hope that text entered with these browser embedded
WYSIWYG editors (like Kupu) will be really pure content? I mean, the
input shouldn't even be HTML (as far as the user sees it at least), but
something like DocBook.
