99% of all files on my server just all *are* of .html, Andreas. :-)

If you say so, than it will be the truth, I guess. :-)
But I doubt, that you are right.

Nothing new to me, Andreas. The same mechanism as practised on

The given meta element is worthless for XHTML documents, who are  
parsed with the XML parser of the browser, if served with  
"application/xhtml+xml". As far as I know, it is even not *read* by  
an XML parser. But it doesn't harm either, if parsed in XML mode.
I won't say, that that was a clueless decision, Andreas.

Andreas, any other things, you are able to contribute? Or do you just  
want to bitch a little bit?

We tend to get a little OT here. Let's return to the validator's topics.
