MDTest uses the DOMDocument->loadHTML function[^1] available in PHP 5:


It produces a DOM, which can be normalized for whitespace, then
reserialized as HTML and compared with the expected result file. The
upside is that it's pretty fast. The downside is that it ignores
misnested tags like this one.

I think I will use the XML parser instead. That will work, except for
a few cases where non-XHTML HTML blocks are passed unchanged through

[^1]: PHP 5 DOM functions, including HTML parsing, are based on libxml2.
