Well, anyway there is no difference between "HTML HTML element" and
"XHTML html element".
You could remove any reference to XHTML could be fine and just talk
about "HTML html element" (definining it as the html element in
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml namespace).
You could also add "Note: This is not limited to HTML documents"
