Hi all,

I'm using TidyHTMLTreeBuilder to model syntax structure of HTML
documents. I've been trying to feed in Yahoo and CNN, but the parser
seems to crash:

"  File
"C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\elementtidy\TidyHTMLTreeBuilder.py",
line 89, in parse
return ElementTree.parse(source, TreeBuilder())
File "C:\Python23\lib\site-packages\elementtree\ElementTree.py", line
865, in parse
tree.parse(source, parser)
File "C:\Python23\lib\site-packages\elementtree\ElementTree.py", line
590, in parse
self._root = parser.close()
File
"C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\elementtidy\TidyHTMLTreeBuilder.py",
line 75, in close
return ElementTree.XML(stdout)
File "C:\Python23\lib\site-packages\elementtree\ElementTree.py", line
879, in XML
return parser.close()
File "C:\Python23\lib\site-packages\elementtree\ElementTree.py", line
1169, in close
self._parser.Parse("", 1) # end of data
ExpatError: no element found: line 1, column 0"

Could someone else please try it on their system and see if they also
have the same problem? I suspect this problem relates to <form> inside
<table>.

Thank you very much for any help.

Cheers,
Michael
