Based on a little scribbling of DanC's in #rdfig:-

   <DanC> timbl did some sketching a while ago of what HTML
     should look like in n3: [ :p ("this is a paragraph with" [ :em
     ("emphasized")] "text in it")]. or something like that.
 - http://ilrt.org/discovery/chatlogs/rdfig/2001-12-13.html#T15-58-22

I wrote up a fuller HTML document in N3:-

[[[
@prefix h: <http://infomesh.net/2002/html#> .
@prefix : <http://infomesh.net/2002/html-attrs#> .

[:lang "en"; h:html (
   [h:head (
      [h:title ("HTML in Notation3 Test Document")]
      [:rel "stylesheet"; :type "text/css"; :href <style.css>; h:link ()]
   )]
   [h:body (
      [h:h1 ("HTML in N3")]
      [h:p ("This is a test document.")]
      [h:address (
        [:href <http://purl.org/net/sbp/>;
         :title "A Homepage Of Sean B. Palmer"; h:a ("Sean B. Palmer")]
      )]
   )]
)] .
]]] - <<html.n3>>

and then wrote a little filter to transform it into XHTML:-

[[[
@prefix h: <http://infomesh.net/2002/html#> .
@prefix : <http://infomesh.net/2002/html-attrs#> .
@prefix daml: <http://www.daml.org/2001/03/daml+oil#> .

{ :x [ log:uri [ string:startsWith "http://infomesh.net/2002/html#" ] ] ();

]]] - <<n3tohtml.n3>>

there are some interesting things going on in there, capitalizing on some
of CWM's quirks. I ran it using:-

   $ cwm html.n3 n3tohtml.n3 --think --strings > result.html

and got the following output after two and a half minutes of processing
time:-

[[[
<html lang="en" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><title>HTML in
Notation3 Test Document</title>
<link href="file:/home/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>
<body><h1>HTML in N3</h1>
<p>This is a test document.</p>
<address><a href="http://purl.org/net/sbp/" title="A Homepage Of Sean B.
Palmer">Sean B. Palmer</a>
</address>
</body>
</html>
]]] - <<result.html>>

All of the files are attached for slurpability.
