Subject: XHTML, content type, and content negotiation

| I'm specifically concerned about the following open Mozilla bug:
| <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26022>

Here a couple of other interesting XHTML bugs.

<URL: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26026 >: "embeded
stylesheet in XHTML 1.0 document is not recognized."

Some comments:

"We don't currently support inline style attributes or style tags inside
documents.  Marking M19..."

"This bug has been marked "future" because the original netscape
engineer working
on this is over-burdened." (This means that it won't get fixed for
Mozilla 5.0!)

<URL: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27507 >: "Crash
instead of blank page for malformed xhtml page"

Some comments:

"OK, I'm confusing myself. I meant to say (and this time I mean it :-)
bottom line is that if the mimetype is text/html, we should treat the
contents as HTML, even if it contains an XML decl."

"Oh good grief. The XHTML spec itself is very clear. XHTML documents can
served as either text/html or text/xml, and we will follow two distinct
paths (via the xml sink or the html sink+strict DTD)." :(
