Yes, post it, if it's that short.

Has anyone done this kind of thing with non-well-formed HTML? I mean, if
even non-well-formed HTML can be parsed into a DOM, and a DOM can be used
as input to an XSLT processor, it seems to follow that an extension
function like foo:html-document() would be feasible as an analog to the
explicitly XML-specific document() function. You wouldn't even need a DOM
to do it. Having such an extension function would alleviate a very common
source of frustration among people trying to generate composite HTML
