I've been doing precisely that for some time, despite the fact that it is
'considered harmful'. I am not so sure I am likely to jump into using XHTML
2.0 quite so quickly, though. To my mind it seems rather strict and perhaps
not ideal for creating rich web content. Nevertheless, I agree with Tantek
in that I think many will make use of it before user agents exist than can
handle it.
