Hi,

in the section 1.4.1 (http://www.w3.org/html/wg/html5/#html-vs) there is:

"Generally speaking, authors are discouraged from trying to use XML on
the Web, because XML has much stricter syntax rules than the "HTML5"
variant described above, and is relatively newer and therefore less mature."

Well, if this is true why then we even define XML serialization of HTML5?

Please remove this sentence or change its meaning to stress that there
might be problems with some user-agents and XML, but no XML is not less
mature then HTML (disregarding whether HTML is SGML based one or HTML5
based one).

Jirka
