Assuming this was non-core (and thus has the flexibility to rely on
extensions that's aren't standard fare), you could use
http://us2.php.net/tidy to get a cleaned/tidied file, which you can
then manipulate as XML. I haven't used the PHP version, but I'd used
Tidy before and it's pretty slick. You can get some strange nesting of
elements sometimes if your source HTML is really scrappy though.
