I was trying to solve this problem the other day, and the best
solution I found is haskell-source-exts:

It doesn't restrict you to XHMTL, just any valid set of XML, but
provided you actually know XHTML that shouldn't be a massive problem.
Its also quite nice, and requires less effort than other options, in
my opinion.

For example:

hello name = <html><body>Hello <% name %></body></html>

Is how you write Hello Whoever in hsx.

It also has loads of XML processing so you could write your own XHTML
1.1 validator in about 10 minutes, and run it over your stuff.
