This seems to be a classic case where you should be using a pipeline
architecture: a series of transformations. First transform your data to
"clean" XML, that is, to


and then the real processing all becomes much easier. The advantage of
splitting the transformation into phases is that the "clean-up" phase is
reusable, and independent of the subsequent processing you want to perform.
