The real advantage of XHTML is that it is an XML language. So you can extend
with your own tags by using XML Schema, define your tag interpretation and
representation by XSLT and XSL:FO, create new kind of links by XPointer and
XLink. By XML you can define parsed and unparsed entities, define new elements,
archetypes, model groups, attributes, mix different XML languages like MathML or
3D tag languages by prefixing you tags by namespaces, and so forth. A plenty of
possibilities for develoopers of pages. No more dependencies on server sides.
