The following tests are not well-formed:

at-charset-061.xht
   This triggers an encoding error in the validator. You probably should
   put those Shift-JIS bytes in as numbered character entities. As long
   as you don't put the <style> contents in a CDATA section, they should
   parse into memory as the bytes you want (when parsed as XML).

control-characters-001.xht
white-space-control-characters-001.xht
   The validator complains about these having invalid xmlChars, and it
   doesn't parse as XML. You'll need to find some other way of putting
   these control characters into the document. Maybe using the DOM.

table-intro-example-*
   These are missing lots of internal table element end tags.

overflow-applies-to-004.xht
   This one has two <body> tags.

html-attribute-023.xht
   This one uses a boolean attribute in shorthand, but in XML they must
   be written out in full.
   Also, looking at the test, I don't think it's testing what the assert
   says it's testing. To test noshade, you need to compare not the color,
   but the style. The noshade attribute indicates a solid (as opposed to
   carved-looking) rule, not a color or the ability to take color.
