In order to transform the HTML into a "proper" HTML with closed tags
(and then XHTML), I just opened the HTML file in Firefox, opened the
developer tools and went to the DOM tab, clicked on the `<html>`
element and copy it into clipboard.  Then I've just pasted it over the
original HTML, and surprisingly all the "closing tag" magic happened,
while still keeping the original source formatting.
