How about running a full database search (BLAST etc.) using the most
"important" sequence or group of sequences to allow you to choose the
subset of the database that is interesting (you can decide the cutoff
of significance) and then run Clustal, or your favourite alignment
program, to line them all up?  There was also a thread last week on
choosing good "highlighting" programs.
	In my humble opinion Blast/FastA and ClustalW *are* "high
quality" programs....
