parsing XML within HTML files

I am developing some servlet application and am looking at XML to see if I
can use it to present dynamic information.

AlL I want to do is in normal HTML files, there will be some customized XML
tags to mark the places where dynamic values will be inserted, so when the
servlet serves those pages, it will provide those values but leave the HTML
text alone. The question is how I can do this, do I need a DTD that defines
HTML and my customized tags or is there any XML parsers understand HTML? I
am new to XML, so any advice is welcome.
