I use psgml in combination with MMM -- see the instructions here:

http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/HtmlModeDeluxe

Getting psgml up and running -- especially getting the W3C DTDs (why
oh why don't they make them all available in a single package) is a pain
but very much worth it. Read up about psgml (use google) -- and if you're
still interested and want some help using it for (X)HTML editing then drop
me an email (if you just post to the NG I may miss it) and I can help you
out (e.g. send you all the relevant DTDs, send you the relevant bits of my
.emacs, etc.).

I must say that I currently have one of the nicest (X)HTML editing
environments I've ever used. It could be better, admittedly, and when I
find some time I'd especially like to make some improvements to CSS mode,
and I use javascript-generic-mode for javascript which is pretty
bare-bones. But nevertheless, I think it's pretty damn nifty.

Best, Darren
