Exactly what XML format are you looking for? Do you want to convert that HTML document to an XHTML document? SgmlReader can help doing that, http://developer.mindtouch.com/en/docs/SgmlReader

You HAVE to ensure the HTML is well-formed (as in XML well-formed). Other than that, it should just be a matter of having an XML-typed column in your database and inserting the data.

If you cannot guarantee that your HTML is well-formed, then you will not be able to store this data.

I think you've misunderstood what XML is. HTML is mark-up for both presentation and data/content whereas XML is mark-up specifically for data/content only, it has no presentation information.

Essentially they are formatted very similar so they shouldn't need much conversion, though I'm still unsure why you would need to convert HTML to XML to store it in an SQL database.

Could you possibly show us the HTML you want converted (or a portion of it) and why you need it in XML?

Well-formed HTML is a subset of XML  :  )

My 2 cents... I'm not sure what's your specific need, but I think it would be simpler to store the HTML in a nvarchar(max) column.

Can you elaborate on why you need it to be in XML?

Your attached example is not well-formed XML. You will need to either correct it if you want to store it in an XML-typed column, or store it in a string-typed column.
