First of all, just because the W3 validator says its valid xhtml, it doesn't
mean that it is in fact valid xhtml. It says this right on the validator
pages. The validator was not designed to handle XML. There are other
validators that do a proper job, but none come to my memory at this time.

"Netscape 6 supports XML, but not fully support, so I am still waiting
the released verions of Netscape 6 which fully supports XML."

To my understanding, Netscape 6 (or Mozilla, currently in M16 release) uses
XML as its cornerstone. Most of the GUI is actually XUL. Furthermore, it is
my understanding that IE has support for more proprietary Microsoft XML than
W3's XML. I could be wrong on both of these, though; I've been out of touch
with the issue for a few months.
