Really? the experts that I know of that actually *know how* to use XHTML in the
real world do no such thing.

Even the W3c's home page uses content negotiation based on the user-agents
capability's and uses the same URL for XHTML(application/xhtml+xml) and

Unfortunately (due to this bug #18) it validates with the (text/html) mime type
and not the (application/xhtml+xml) that the home page sends my browser.
