I had a developer convert about 50 documents using Tidy.  It has a lot of
options to configure/needs a lot of tweaking.

There is a mode of operation where it only fixes overlapped tags.  It's
sometimes a good idea to use a two or three pass approach.  It doesn't get
confused so easily when it has less simultaneous tasks.

You're still not going to get out of removing all the style related elements
and moving them to a style sheet.
