Looking at the functions available from xmlparse.h
the following might work (though I have not tried it)...

Since you are using expat in the libwww framework,
when you go to setup your handlers you have access to
XML_Parser xmlparser.
When you are setting up your handlers you can also call
XML_UseParserAsHandlerArg(XML_Parser parser).

This way you will have the XML_Parser instance you are using in all your
xml callbacks. You can then within these methods check
XML_GetErrorCode to see if an error occurred.

But an even simpler method might be to hold on to a reference
to the XML_Parser instance when your HTXMLCallback_registerNew
is called and then in your terminate_hander for the eventloop you
can check the XML_Parser for an error. You could even set the XML_Parser
as the param element of the callback too, instead of using a global var,
by specifying
the XML_Parser instance when you add your terminate_handler callback
 HTNet_addAfter(terminate_handler, NULL, xmlParser, HT_ALL,

Not sure if any of these suggestions help
