Another $0.02 from me about XHTML...

How exactly do we implement XHTML now? Which file extension should be used,
which styling method should be used, should we tell currently available web
browsers (IE5, NS4x, Opera, etc) to process this as HTML, or as XML?

Questions I think I've asked before, but, err, ummm... thanks for dealing
with my ignorance, I think...

I'd be more excited about XHTML if I knew more about it. As it is, I feel
like I'm waiting for it to "truly be possible" or something... kinda like
"Wow, that new-fangled HDTV will be really neat some day!" (No, America
still doesn't really have it.)

Is there anything that can be done to make XHTML feel more like a "now
thing" than a "coming thing?" Or am I just out of touch with what's going
on? IF I'M OUT OF TOUCH, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! :)
