Those had the http or https URI scheme (a promiscuous self-signing- 
accepting certificate handler was used for https), returned text/html  
as Content-Type and 200 as the response status.

So yes, this set did contain pseudo-XHTML. But note that HTML5 makes  
the most common pseudo-XHTML talismans conforming and tree builder- 
level doctype errors didn't count.
