I don't think that it's hard to do. In the past I've developed thousands of HTML pages and interfaces. Some hand produced, some by code. Everyone of those were valid HTML.

I would develop a valid HTML static page and then the dynamic stuff would be fitted into the nested areas of that HTML. As long as the dynamic stuff was valid HTML then it would be valid when inserted into the nests. Not hard at all in my opinion and decades of experience.
