FYI: html5lib has test cases:

FYI: 5 people have contributed to the Ruby library, and the only library 
I personally actually make use of is the Python one, and I have 
contributed significantly to that one too.

html5lib (both the Python and Ruby versions) have the beginnings of 
conformance checkers.  Try "python parse.py -e http://google.com/"

html5lib does a decent job of tidy.

"python parse.py http://google.com".  There also are a wide variety of 
options, like --omit-optional-tags, --quote-attr-values, and 
--use-trailing-solidus.
