That's what XML is about.  So push MS and NS to implement it - talking to
a number of MS developers at WWW6 they personally are in favor of IE 5
having full XML support.  But unless the suits make that a design goal they
can't go do it on their own.  And NS's commitment to XML is still vague.

XML with CSS and/or DSSSL would give you the absolute control you're 
looking for.
