How is it lying to use XHTML 1.0 Strict with a content type of text/html 
if it's allowed in the Specification?
W3.org's main page uses XHTML 1.0 Strict as text/html, does that mean 
they're wrong?

HTML 4.01 allows ugly markup, why use it at all?

I can do things like:
<b><u>Hello</b></u> where the markup is mixmatched
and things like:
 <li>Item1 and not worry about closing the element.

XHTML 1.0 provides a much cleaner markup :)
