If you want to pass your HTML through a program that makes it acceptable to
an XML parser, try HTML Tidy by Dave Raggett, the W3C lead for HTML, math,
and Voice browsers. He describes the XML-cleanup features as follows: XML
processors compliant with W3C's XML 1.0 recommendation are very picky about
which files they will accept. Tidy can help you to fix errors that cause
your XML files to be rejected. Tidy doesn't yet recognize all XML features
though, e.g. it doesn't understand CDATA sections or DTD subsets.

HTML Tidy also cleans up your HTML for its own sake: picks up missing or
mismatched end tags, end tags in the wrong order, fixes heading problems,
fixes tag and ruler mixups, adds missing slashes in anchors, fixes lists,
puts quotes around attributes, reports proprietary or unknown attributes
(such as a misspelled attribute), and cleans empty tags generated by some
editors such as Microsoft Word (save as HTML). It has options for layout
(indentation) style, accessibility changes, and internationalization

Oh, and it's free.

I'm prototyping XML output from a database. The information in the database
contains HTML tagging; therefore the generated XML also contains HTML
I get an IE5 error that my tags aren't closed. Specifically, I am using
tagging (<UL></UL>,<OL></OL>, <LI>) in the database. Does anyone know how
get the XSL parser to handle the HTML in the XML? ...
