If you are asking how to sloppily parse HTML5 files from upstream source 
and XSLT2 files provided by package maintainers, then with perl you 
could use HTML::HTML5::Parser for the first and XML::Saxon::XSLT2 for 
the second.

If you are asking how to parse HTML5 files like a web browser, then with 
perl you could use Gtk3::WebKit2 for that.
