Well, that is fine, probably I should not have complained about 
obsolescence, but I just stated a fact (just try to check any xhtml 
document, and you will get a bunch of errors like the following):

line #1: outer tags should be <HTML> .. </HTML>.
line #1: unknown element <?XML>.
line #2: unknown attribute "XMLNS" for element <HTML>.
line #2: unknown attribute "XML
line #2: unknown attribute "/" for element <LINK>.
line #2: unknown attribute "/" for element <LINK>.
line #2: unknown attribute "/" for element <LINK>.
line #2: unknown attribute "/" for element <META>.
line #2: unknown attribute "/" for element <META>.
