I've seen this problem before.  The basic problem is obviously your backend's
non-HTML.  It's not actually mod_proxy_html fixing it, but the underlying parser

I've some recollection of working around this for a client, but that was some years
ago and I couldn't tell you how - unless perhaps you can trick the parser using
mod_xml2enc's xml2StartParse to squish the first <html> (I'd have to try it to see
how the parser responds to that).  But that's an outside chance: otherwise you're
probably better off with a plain text search-and-replace like mod_sed,
mod_substitute or mod_line_edit.
