There was quite some work on that done by multiple developers, but 
AFAIK, noone did succeed completely.

All made the (X)HTML better in some way, but not completely validating.

One reason for this is the way moin generates the HTML. It maybe just 
isn't possible to generate validating XHTML that way.

Maybe it is a good idea NOT to work on that right now, but wait until a 
better parser/DOM infrastructure is in place in moin (that might take 
quite some time, though, so don't hold your breath).

If you want to help developing, there is lots of work on 
MoinMoinToDoRelease1.2 in the MoinMoin wiki.
Please coordinate before you start working.
