I required something similar for a small script and I found most
useful to create first an HTMLParser which translated all code to
xml and feed that into Python's minidom. It's quite easy to do if
your input HTML is 'correct', otherwise the xml parsing will surely
fail, unless you filter all through tidy, of course.
