The best way to handle this, in my opinion, is to replace the XML tagging
structure with lisp lists. Thus you can turn the 

<a href="foo.html">my words</a> 


(a :href "foo.html" :text "my words")


(a "foo.html" "my words")

and use a lisp parser. You instantly have a fast parser that can be
easily extended with readtables, a macro expansion facility, and a
way to define new tags. Portable, fast, powerful, well-defined, 
extensible, available, easily integrated, existing tools, compileable,
package-namespaces, etc.

New schemas can be defined with macros.
