I suggest using the HTML5 parsing algorithm. It has been developed to  
be implementable by browsers without breaking compatibility with real  
sites. (Of the current parsing algorithms in various browsers, the  
HTML5 parsing algorithm is closest to WebKit.)

The Validator.nu HTML Parser implements the HTML5 parsing algorithm in  
Java and exposes familiar XML APIs as if it were an XML parser parsing  
an equivalent XHTML5 document.
