I was looking at XHTML 1.0  Strict served as application/xhtml+xml.  
Which is what Thomas was specifically talking about and your tests  
didn't cover. I hadn't intended to be dismissive or disparaging of  
your tests, I apologize if it came across that way.

FWIW, my copy of Safari 3 beta inserts the <tbody> into both of your  
test pages.
