Yes, that is me.

Firebug has less access to Gecko internals than one would expect, so
we often use heuristics. Technically it scans the doctype for xhtml
and then tries to determine if the document is in html of xhtml mode.
If the doctype specifies xhtml and the browser is saying it is not,
then I red flag it. The only way I know for Gecko to enter xhtml mode
is through the server's http content-type header.

But looking at:


shows that I am in error in how I handle that. I'll have to ignore
what mode the browser is actually in, and look at the doctype when
possible. I may issue on tooltip warning that just because it is an
xhtml document, doesn't mean that it can do things like mathml or svg.

Thanks for the correction.
