I don't agree I'm afraid. Looking at Eduardo's stats, at least 99.84%  
of documents are XHTML but not advertised as such. This leaves 0.16%  
of sites as XHTML and advertised as such.

Combine with NetCrafts figures of and that's just shy of 300,000 sites  
- a pretty significant number to discount, even if a small proportion  
of the overall web IMHO.
