This conversation / specific post might also be helpful:
Evaluating code written in non-SEXP language --

I've used a slightly modified version of Matthew Flatt's code from there to
directly render Scribble from a string or port to HTML, just swap out the
#lang for scribble/html. From there, you should be able to use
read-html-as-xml to get an xexpr.

I can't speak to the relative speed of doing it this way though.
