Be aware that there is a stylesheet that transforms between
"source html" and the Forrest "internal document" xml format.
As mentioned on that "Embedded HTML demonstration page" and
elsewhere, that stylesheet does not cope with everything.
and $FORREST_HOME/main/webapp/resources/stylesheets/html-to-document.xsl

Could you provide a cut down example of your source
html docs. Then someone can simply add it to a local
"forrest seed-sample" site and see for themselves.
Create a new issue at our issue tracker and attach your sample.
