HTML or XHTML - why do you use it?

Inspired by some of the comments in a recent thread (and several websites 
debating it once in a while), I'm curious whether You use HTML or XHTML, and 
why you choose either one over the other. Or do you use some other markup 
language more often?

As for me, it's a simple no brainer in favor of XHTML. Partly because I feel 
it's eventually going to replace the older HTML versions. But mostly because 
I use XSLT often and that makes HTML files "unreliable" or useless to me. I 
don't lose anything in keeping my doc's as XHTML, but I do gain all the XML 
support while keeping the HTML one's. I just don't see any real benefits for 
me in HTML anymore, besides needing it to display in IE.
