It isn't confused, you are. I'll draw your attention to:
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#h-4.8 (and yes, that means you are
commenting your CSS out entirely too[1]) and
http://www.hixie.ch/advocacy/xhtml


[1] Your browser won't notice if you serve it as text/html (which also
renders the use of XHTML rather pointless).
