The HTML5 specification has both a HTML and a XML syntax. It makes no sense to
have examples of just one of them when they many of them easily could be
changed to be compatible with both. This does not mean that authors cannot use
markup that isnít compatible with both.

There is of course another solution to this and that is to move the examples to
separate document(s) that has examples of both. But that would be a lot more
work.
