You can also consider

* all files that people create and manage on their own computers as  
HTML.
* Software documentation accessible through the installation of the  
software
* epub format (ebook) which is an xhtml derivatives.
* etc.

In addition, there are features in the format which are used and  
useful in controlled environments and less used on the public Web.   
For example, meta keywords, author and description are used by  
Spotlight (on MacOSX) to index html document (.html suffix), when the  
same features are barely used by public search engines. [Note:  
Spotlight does not index so far the XHTML document (.xhtml suffix)].

Près de vous, madame, oubliant les cieux,
L'astronome étonné se trouble ;
C'est dans l'éclat caressant de vos yeux,
Qu'il avait cru trouver l'étoile double.
