I recognize that there is really no way to ensure that the final output
will be valid XML.  But, batch-processing is just not going to happen.
The whole point of a server-parsed html-embedded language is that it is
dynamic.  In the little example I posted, the output depends on the
identity of the person viewing the page.  There is no way to batch-process
every possible variation of a dynamic page's output.
