I'm using libxml2 for an application that generates XHTML output. I've

 existing function that will output XHTML markup from the HTMLparser?

In libxml2 htmlDoc objects *are* xmlDoc objects, so if you just care
about well-formedness  any of the normal XML functions will do. Will
need to walk the tree to set the correct the namespace on all the
nodes however.

  As martin said. If you want the extra XHTML1 serailization rules
to be applied by the libxml2 serializer add the XHTML1 DTDs to the
document after parsing and before calling the saving function.
See 3.1.1 4/

Ok, thanks, that makes sense. 

Do I need to write the code to walk the tree and apply the new name
space to each node or is there an existing function I'm missing along
the lines xmlSetTreeDoc() that will do it for me? If not, would you like
an xmlSetTreeNs() and xmlSetListNs() function or is this too obscure to
be generally useful?
