yes as I said earlier, the htmlparse stylesheet is an htmlparser (of sorts) written in pure xslt2. I mainly wrote it to teach myself some xslt2, but some people have used it in anger on some surprisingly large documents.

If you want to parse an entire html file you are probably better off using something like tidy or tagsoup but for parsing fragments of html embedded in CDATA sections htmlparse works reasonably well and avoids relying on processor-specific extensions, although being xslt2 you're not overloaded with processor choice anyway....
