  Yes, I'm aware of HTML Tidy.  I was thinking not so much of cleaning 
up the HTML for a site as being able to load it into an arbitrary
program.  I've no beef with Dan, but having it as a Python class can
be useful as well; this would definately be nice in the context of a
Web browser or, perhaps, a program that performs transformations of
pages, even even converts HTML documents to some other format
(PostScript leaps to mind).  There's a certain impedence mismatch
between stylesheet application and ill-formed documents.
