There ya go, just call it "xHTML" with a little x.
Personally I think W3C need to decide if HTML and XHTML are the same
language, or represent a variant/fork. The names and version numbers should
reflect this. Maybe it really would best to do away with "XHTML" anything
and just use HTML5 (and it can be HTML or XML syntax).
