"As are all of W3C's specifications, XHTML is a theoretical construct
that
is interesting in its implications and may still grow to play an
important
role on the WWW, but right now it is worthless in practice. Software
vendors should make the first move. They should start using (and
requiring)
XHTML in constructive ways without alienating the users of their
products
Only then will the rest of the Web follow.

Those fanatics who think that everything W3C says has the power of a
Divine
Commandment and therefore treat anyone who doesn't use XHTML as a
heretic
to be burned at the stake at the earliest opportunity, are simply wrong.
XHTML isn't about the present, it's about the future. - Peter-Paul Koch
