After rereading I disovered you wanted the opposite of what I just gave you.
(ive been up for a few to many hours working on some deadline stuff - please
forgive me)  None-the-less the concept is the same...  just parse your
nonXML conformant HTML through a CDATA tagged XML node and reverse the
output to be UBB complient instead...

Good luck!
