Do you intend to only display HTML you have generated yourself, or
random user supplied data. If the latter, you'll find that very few
files actually conform, and it is a lot easier to write a simple fault
tolerant parser by hand.

If it is the former, I would suggest using XML instead. A search of
Yahoo will give you pointers to many tools in many languages for it.
