XSLT 2.0 *should* (not could) support XHTML as a standard output
format.  Also, it should either specify that XHTML output does the minor
things HTML Tidy does to make this XHTML palatable to existing browsers
(e.g. turn <br/> into <br />) or it should specify that the HTML output
actually is XHTML with these minor things done to satisfy existing
browsers.

Having to produce XHTML with the XML output option and then run it
through HTML Tidy before returning it to a client is too inconvenient.
We'll stay with plain HTML until this changes!
