There has been some suggestion that the HTML 5 spec doesn't make it very 
clear that "HTML 5" is just a vocabulary that applies equally to HTML as 
to XHTML. I have tried to clarify this a little by adding a subtitle, so 
that the top of the spec now reads:

   HTML 5
   A vocabulary and associated APIs for HTML and XHTML

I hope this helps matters a little.
