I think he is understanding fine. He is answering using the language  
from within the spec:

- "HTML 5" is a specification that defines HTML5 and XHTML5
- "HTML5 is a custom format inspired by SGML
- "XHTML5" is a XML format.

Henri throughout uses HTML5 to refer to the text/html serialisation,  
which therefore means his comments are completely justified.
