Native XHTML is the term I used for XHTML which is written without
regard for the HTML backwards-compatibility suggestions given in
the appendix of the XHTML 1.0 spec:

http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#guidelines

XHTML 1.0 is not fully backwards-compatible with HTML or with HTML

recommendations for compatibility -- such as writing <br/> as
<br />.
