For invocations of tidy(1), yes, it is normal.  Tidy is a program which,
well, tidies up the HTML generated by other programs by formatting it so
it is compact and good-looking.  It can finish with an exit code of 1 if
there are any warnings - basically, if anything needed changing.  Since
the FreeBSD Documentation Project toolchain generates HTML that does
really need tidying up, it is virtually certain that tidy(1) will exit
with a code of 1 on nearly every invocation, so its results are ignored.
