malformed html
Have you considered running the files through HTML Tidy in a batch process? It would take about ten minutes to script the batch job, and all your messy HTML would be transformed into well-formed XML.

Subject:   pass malformed HTML through the parser?

Our site is XML/XSL, however we are about to receive a thousand pages of old
static html that we will never have the time to turn into XHTML. I would
like to be able to spit it through the parser without parsing it so that I
can wrap our site template around the static html as I do for our other
content. Is this possible?

I have tried the following:

-- using the document() function but the parser just ignored the file as it
was not XML.
