Ken Krugler commented on TIKA-1599:
-----------------------------------

>From TIKA-2928, an example of text that fails with TagSoup but works with JSoup:
<tr ><td > GFR<60 = Chronic Kidney Disease, GFR<15 = Kidney Failure </td></tr><tr
><td ></td></tr><tr ><td > ENZYMES & BILIRUBIN</td></tr>

> Switch from TagSoup to JSoup

> There are several Tika issues related to how TagSoup cleans up HTML ([TIKA-381], [TIKA-985],
maybe [TIKA-715]), but TagSoup doesn't seem to be under active development.
> On the other hand I know of several projects that are now using [JSoup|https://github.com/jhy/jsoup],
which is an active project (albeit only one main contributor) under the MIT license.
> I haven't looked into how hard it would be to switch this dependency.
