HTML Generators

Why can’t Web scripts like Movable Type and converters like Tex4ht generate HTML that validates? I’ve cleaned up the Movable Type template, for the main index page at least. It looks pretty good without CSS now. But the HTML generated by Movable Type itself is still bad: it generates unescaped ampersands in URLs and lots of other junk. Are there any HTML-generating tools that actually generate valid HTML? Short-term solution: remove the footer link that validates the current page.
