Arrr... no they don't actually. This causes a enormous amount of problems.
XHTML SHOULD not be served as text/html and the validator is wrong to do so,
and misleads people when it validates such a page. Sooner or later people will
have to be told the truth. It's going to be an interesting time when people
start changing from XHTML1.0 (sent as text/html) to HTML5 (sent as text/html).
Then people will find out once and for all what XHTML really is :)
