I have only 1 comment on the XHTML specification.

The use of 3 namespaces for XHTML seems incorrect to me. I understand
that there are 3 DTDs, and that is why you can have 3 different 
DOCTYPE definitions. I believe the namespace should be the same for
all HTML files. The namespace should not point to a DTD, since
namespaces are not the same as DTDs or Schemas.
