You could do that, but you probably don't want to unless you
automate the tag table creation in some way :-) Let me know if
you're interested, since the version on my (much too outdated)
webpages is not the most up-to-date one. Also note, that the
engine is something like a combined lexer+parser.

BTW: It's not a HTML parser in the sense that it uses a strict
grammar which you probably have in mind here.
