I agree that we should attempt to get a DOM out of the resource if at
all possible, and write the rest of the tests in terms of the DOM
where possible. A resource that isn't valid will still fail
VALID_MARKUP but I think it's important to take this small step to be
flexible and provide additional info.

I'll look into some kind of Java HTML Tidy.
