No, not even slightly. You appear to be thinking that static site
generators come with a pre-made set of design templates, and as
far as I am aware they generally do not.

That's the purpose of all of them I should imagine.

It's time you need to spend. Otherwise, use Wordpress, optionally
with a static site generator plugin.

I'm not sure why you think that using XML is in any way "pure" or
"perfect", nor why not using XML means your input is "malformed".
Just use HTML 5, and indeed you should check your code to ensure
it is pure, perfect and well-formed.
