Differences on the syntax level are all easily altered later using  
something like html5lib. The problem is more with scripting, CSS  
differences, etc. Having said that, we're trying to reduce the amount of  
scripting differences and the CSS differences can be removed.

Also there are things like <style> and <script> which fundamentally have  
different syntax in XML and HTML. You could use some weird workarounds  
there too though, I suppose.
