XML inside HTML question

I have a tag-based scripting language to be used with web pages (HTML).  I
want this scripting language to be XML-based, despite the fact that the XML
tags will exist within the confines of the non-well-formed HTML.

Is there a way to write a DTD that covers all of that in a way that lets me
use an XML parser to get my stuff out and treat all the other stuff that's
not mine (HTML, text, other people's XML tags, etc.) as CDATA, or something

This would be great... then I could assume XML to deal with my own scripting
language but I examine everything else in the context of simple CDATA rather
than trying to parse it out as a full-blown tag tree.

Any ideas?
