Yes.  Just expect a slooooooooow uptake.
 
I'm not sure everyone is quite considering the size 
of the legacy of hardcoded HTML in program files 
out here.   The HTML tag soup legacy is a very 
large porridge now and we can't just dump the 
tureen into the river and start fresh.   It's hard for 
me to conceive of an upgrade strategy that autofixes 
this.
 
It will be interesting to see how the dominant 
browser vendor copes.  The footprint size of 
IE is turning into a rock babe:  fat bottomed,  
big hair, lots of makeup, and ready to fight.

:) ... Apologies for the typo. .... It's late here in the UK. My question, of course, was "Is XHTML worth persevering *with*?".
