There are XHTML fragments in 11.1.1, 12.1, 16.3.1, 17.5, and 17.5.3. 
Basically, every example added since CSS2 has been XHTML.

We would rather not change the existing examples because we have had very 
bad experiences when doing so. Specifically, it seems every time we make a 
change for editorial reasons rather than to fix a real problem, we 
actually introduce a problem instead.

Since we'd rather not introduce more problems at this stage, we'd rather 
not touch the existing examples unless they are wrong. :-)

Please let us know if this is not satisfactory.
