It could be simplified further by removing the <?xml?> line, which is 
redundant. Also, the entire example is rather poor, since a redirect would 
be much better done as a 30x redirect, and having the primary example of 
an XHTML document be the entity body of a 30x, which is not usually seen 
by users, seems suboptimal.
