Yes, but I still need a way to refer to each one where the distinction 
is needed and whatever I use, it should ideally be clear that I'm 
referring to a specific serialisation rather than just the language in

Yes, that's my intention.  I want to explain all the differences in 
detail and provide tips for reducing them where

e.g. When describing the script element, I'll explain the use of 
<![CDATA[]]> sections for scripts in XHTML, the use of HTML comments 
intended to hide scripts from older browsers, and provide tips like 
using external files instead to avoid all hassles.  Basically a revised 
and shortened version of a previous article I've written on this issue.
