The latter does not exist.  If a file is served with the text/html
mimetype, it is an HTML document, and is processed according to HTML
rules.  If it is served with one of the xml mimetypes, it is an XML
document, and is processed according to XML rules.  That is all.
There is no longer any such thing as "XHTML served as text/html".
