You can have a look at Ocsigen's xmlp4 module (allowing you to type
xhtml code in quotations and get an AST):;a=tree;f=/xmlp4/newocaml

Especially the files xmllexer.mll (using ocamlex, based on lexer.mll
from ocaml source) and (written in revised syntax). 

The interresting parts are at the end of both files (look at functions
Xmllexer.from_string = Xhtmlparser.parse, Xhtmlparser.xml_exp).
