hm-- i'm not sure an html parser will actually help. some of the inline 
markdown content is invalid html (i believe).

eg., rendering the blockquotes from your slides is another piece of inline 
markdown that has to be done manually:

> this is a blockquote rendered as
> a <blockquote><p>...</p></blockquote>

needs to have the <blockquote>...etc put in manually. surrounding with CDATA 
allows cow to escape the to &gt;  

similarly some of the indentation in code blocks isn't passed through by CDATA 

i've managed to make most of them except your lectures look ok. i'll push 
changes -- if you can figure out a solution, let me know. else i'll have to go 
back to serving fragments from files i think.
