Would using hAtom be a viable option for you, as the second tool  
apparently does already? hAtom puts some annotations in the HTML file  
that allow it to guarantee that entry ids are preserved across the  
translation. So it can't give useful output from just a plain HTML  
file, but it can guarantee to satisfy the Atom requirements.
