The HTMLTidy library

// There actually is a library for tidying HTML into XHTML called HTMLTidy
// See
// HTMLTidy is actually a great tool for dealing with 1990s-era tag soup
// HTML, I highly recommend it.

// This isn't the API for Tidy, but let's assume it's a C library returning
// errno domained error codes. out must be freed with free() after use.
extern "C" int tidy_html(char **out, size_t *outlen, const char *in, size_t inlen);

A C API may not initially appear to be a T|E based API, but if failure returns some domained error code and causes no other effects, and success returns some value, then it is effectively a “split” T|E API. The above is an example of exactly that form of “split” T|E API.
