Not at all i can assure you that a lot of people got quite heated about this
issue!

You should use htm if you expect it to be treated like an html document. Of
course you can also write xml, because an XHTML document is also a well
formed xml document, but if you send it as xml don't expect the html styling
and semantics to be applied to it!
