Whilst this is how HTML should be written, the reality is that it is written
for the default condition top end browser then hacked to make it work with
older browsers and non-standard configurations.  A lot of UK commercial
pages are completely blank to me.

Note that I would be worried if the people heavily into scripting rushed to
XHTML 2.0; I would suspect them of doing it to get points on their CV, not
for good technical reasons.
