--- Comment #2 from Dr. Martin W. Baker <martinwbaker@yorkdevres.co.uk> ---
The X of XHTML surely means extensible.

The standard means of making xml formatted documents extensible is to add a
namespace.

W3C introduced a namespace for xhtml  namely http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml and
this was included once upon a time in the <html> tag.

If we were checking solely as HTML your comment would be valid.  It seems
inappropriate if checking against XHTML.
