Re: [xml-dev] Parsing bad HTML

For parsing purposes, I has written a Java function to convert bad html to just well formed xml (the resulting xml is not xhtml...).

It can be easily modified to correct < characters between valid html tags.

This is an opensource project : http://sourceforge.net/projects/light-html2xml

I use tidy to clean up  bad html docs. It does a pretty good job of converting html => strict xthml

However, the following is a bit too much

<sub>123</sub>4567<eight<img src="javascript:void(0);" alt="<b>hello</b>">

The problem is with 7<eight. Stray < and > seem to make tidy choke. What is the best method of handling this? I am leaning toward perl and regexp, but am hoping to avoid this. Maybe a Java solution? And tidy solutions?
