HTML Question

How can I convert HTML to XML (which conforms with XML schema or DTD)

I'm trying to convert some HTML files to XML format on ubuntu and they should conform to a specific XML schema or DTD. I guess Tidy should do that but I don't understand the syntax for it. Or if there are other tools, I'd be glad to try them out.
For instance: Convert

file.htm
to
file.xml
(which conforms to
standard.DTD
)
Thanks

Tidy can convert HTML to XHTML (the same structure of elements and attributes but meeting the rules for XML well-formedness), but it can't convert it to meet the requirements of some arbitrary DTD.

You'll need to write an explicit mapping between the two data formats for that. XSLT is a popular language for doing that.
