Antoine,
When you say '...and turning HTML pages into valid XML is not something
addressed by the semantic web' I am not sure what you mean. What is the
'semantic web' here?
I think it is addressed by a python tool here

http://code.google.com/p/semantic-fire/

and there must be other tools, too, but I don't have references to hand.

Generally the problem is referred to as Lifting, although this is restricted
to XML --> RDF and RDF --> some expressive representation of the semantics
contained. So XML --> RDFa would be an example.
This leaves the problem of HTML --> XML. I'm not sure that HTMLtidy will get
all the way here though.
I haven't used semantic fire but is should be capable of the task.

Best,

Adam
