Tidying SGML documents

I figure I'd ask before trying to clean these manually.  What sgml-fu do
you guys use to tidy horrendously formatted website documents?  The
GNOME docs are in pretty bad shape, and I've finally gotten fed up
enough to fix them.

I'm a vim user, and found this sometime ago:

autocmd BufNewFile,BufRead *.sgml,*.ent,*.html,*.tex,*.xsl set
autoindent formatoptions=tcq2l textwidth=70 shiftwidth=2 softtabstop=2

It works great for writing new documents, but I was hoping there was a
nice automatic recipe for existing documents.  Thanks.
