  XSLT. Your basic problem is to format to print and web version. I don't
see the core reason why this can't be possible with XSLT. You have troubles
but they are mostly related to the fact that you want to operate as a
preprocessor instead of symply relying on stylesheet customization, and/or
markup extensions, but I may be missing the point.
  Of course if you're using PIs to do this markup, it's by essence unstructured
and hence make it difficult to handle easilly at the XSLT level. Well
simply use markup extension to do this.

  I don't use Emacs, but I don't see why you couldn't make it execute 
a wrapper shell around the XSLt processor instead of running the processor
