Errors that involve areas that affect authors migrating to and from XHTML

The spec says: "Some authors like to write files that can be interpreted as
both XML and HTML with similar results. Though this practice is discouraged in
general due to the myriad of subtle complications involved (especially when
involving scripting, styling, or any kind of automated serialization), this
specification has a few restrictions intended to at least somewhat mitigate the
difficulties. This makes it easier for authors to use this as a transitionary
step when migrating between HTML and XHTML."

The spec should city the Polyglot Markup guide at
http://www.w3.org/TR/html-polyglot/ for advice on creating these documents.
