SGML confirming?

The HTML3 specification states:

HTML is an application conforming to the International Standard
ISO 8879 -- Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML).

Has anyone succeeded in using an SGML compliant parser to parse
HTML2 and HTML3 documents? If so, could you please point me to it?

I'm trying to use a DTD driven SGML parser to read HTML documents but I
am finding that the HTML standard has diverged significantly from the
SGML standard.

Have fun,
