I would suggest parsing the HTML using John Cowan's TagSoup parser. This looks to the XSLT processor just like an XML parser, so you can probably integrate it directly - depending on the XSLT processor that you are using.

Subject: [xsl] resolve html entities
I know this is a common question but I could not find a specific answer to this:
I am exporting texts from a database that contains html markup. Now I need to transform
the html to something usable in a DTP application.
The tags are not the problem because I am only allowing a subset of html but the html entities
(german umlauts, special characters) would need to be transformed to plain Unicode (UTF-8)
What is the best way to achieve this?
