(2'nd try...)
A little outdated, but anyway, you can use HTML/XML parser from Mochiweb
https://github.com/mochi/mochiweb/blob/master/src/mochiweb_html.erl and
XPath implementation for it's tree https://github.com/retnuh/mochiweb_xpath

Need to note, that https://github.com/maxlapshin/parsexml is compatible 
with mochiweb_html by tree format, so XPath implementation can be used 
with both parsers.

They are much faster, than xmerl and don't produce any atoms (uses
binaries).
