No. Not a secret.  Just thought it was a "duh" answer not requiring 
explanation but you bring up a good point.  If I was dense enough not to 
figure this out on my own others might be as well.

As Cristopher correctly pointed out tidy needs to be installed on the 
webserver.  I did the following to get it to work.

1. Download Linux_x86 binaries from sourceforge.
2. Copy tidy binary into my /cgi-bin directory.
3. Used PHP info in my install tool to make sure 'safe_mode' was not 
enabled.  This would keep PHP from executing a binary.
4. Changed the tidy_path attribute to:
cgi-bin\tidy -i --quiet true --tidy-mark true -wrap 0 -raw
5. Tweaked the switches using the docs at http://tidy.sourceforge.net/

Hope this helps others.
