Like the utilities at http://home.pacbell.net/david-b/xml/ perhaps?

The focus there is HTML --> XHTML.  Since it's built on top of
the HTML parser in Swing, it's got a few glitches ... but it's
hooked up to an XHTML validator so you can find those easily,
and newer versions of Swing have fixed some of them.  And if you
want, the "jTidy" HTML parser should work too.

If you get both the utilities package and the DOM (L2.latest)
stuff, you've got most of the tools you'll need.

New, and still with some rough edges, is an XML validator that
is driven using SAX2 callbacks ... that is, it's a clean layer,
can work with anything that produces SAX2 events (including the
declaration callbacks).  Does pretty well except for the stuff
that requires layering violations (see the javadoc).  That is
hooked up to the conformance-enhanced AElfred in that package.

I think it gets confused about the "table" model in XHTML, but
that'll get fixed.
