Thanks a lot Jirka, I'll look into them.

I see two possibilities:

1. Convert HTML to XHTML prior loading into DOM. PHP Tidy extension could be used for this, but it's not as robust as HTML parser
(http://about.validator.nu/htmlparser/) -- which can be invoked even fro PHP using Java bridge

2. Modify DOM after loading HTML -- you can walk over complete DOM tree and create new copy with namespace of elements set XHTML. This can be done in PHP or you can implement it in XSLT.
