Your suspicion is correct. Now all I have to do is to get it to render 
in a decent font.

The documentation on HTML::Tidy is less than helpful:

   clean( $str [, $str...] )

   Cleans a string, or list of strings, that make up a single HTML file.

   Returns the cleaned string as a single string.

Not exactly obvious is it?

Ta muchly for the tip.
