That may be true, but I believe that falls outside of *this* particular
topic of discussion, in which Nigel Peck discussed the fact that schools
were not teaching about certain aspects of XHTML (like closing all tags).
Would you argue that developers should not bother to write valid XHTML *web*
documents merely because they must be treated as text/html?  Since most web
developers primarily write HTML documents, would they not be better off
writing them as XHTML?
