Default Re: Html Tidy - rules too fussy?

It's simply <!DOCTYPE html>, which I test first in WC3 Validator then in Html Tidy. The second one picks up a few things that Validator misses (empty <p> for example. Here's Tidy -

Maybe Tidy uses some XTM standards - I don't know - though it identifies my pages as Html5. It also objects to any '&' used in a sentence, & wants all accents (&eacute; etc) changed to code numbers.
It gives links about errors, sometimes, to WC3 working documents, which are a bit cryptic. Also line numbers (which I have to guess at) to locate the errors. A 'tidied' version of the web page is generated, too.
