As I wrote in my initial message, the -E option doesn't seem to be a
real filter (which writes the output to the generated html file), but
both the generated HTML code (on stdout) as well the error messages of
tidy (on stderr) are written on the screen.  So the changes of tidy
doesn't have any effect on the generated HTML code and I cannot read
the error messages of tidy, because most of the screen is filled with
the HTML code.

This won't be trivial when I try to use "Shebang Line Support"
(#!wml at the top of the WML file) for multiple language support.

Anyway, I could do something like this, but tidy is bundled with WML
as wml_aux_tidy, so I thought, that there would be a cleaner way to
combine tidy and wml.  And that was the center of my question...
