I wrote http://nell-wikipedia.github.cscott.net a while ago with a
similar goal.  It is an offline wiki using parsoid output.  It needs a
bit of updating, since the Parsoid output has changed slightly since I
wrote it.

But you can also use http://parsoid.wmflabs.org/enwiki/Main_Page
directly now.  The Parsoid output includes a style sheet which ought
to render the parsoid DOM output identically to the standard PHP page

We're constructing a visual diff tool this quarter so that "soon" we
should be able to do even better: testing for pixel-accurate matches
against standard output.  But that's not done yet, so bug reports on
Parsoid output and CSS/rendering issues are still valuable.

We are beginning to get there. :-)

See https://github.com/subbuss/parsoid_visual_diffs/blob/master/diffs/enwiki.Medha_Patkar.diff.jun27.jpg for the latest pixel-level visual diff on a sample page. Within the next couple weeks, we should be able to start generating these on a wider range of pages and set up regression testing on them as well to track progress.
