I hope it was understood that I wasn't saying the markup was bad.  I
was just saying that it will be perceived that way (in general) by
those using XHTML markup.  We would probably get better acceptance if
we cater to that group a little at first and let them warm up to the
HTML way again.

I'll have to keep track of comments on sites so I can cite examples in
the future.
