I have been really bad about this in the past - and this is no 
exception.  Sorry!  There is a new XHTML Family language: XHTML+RDFa 
[1].  The latest version of the DTD will always be at 
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/DTD/xhtml-rdfa-1.dtd [2].  Is there a way to 
get this into the validator?  Also, note that as per the (currently 
being updated) XHTMLMIME document [3], this language can be served as 
text/html or applicaiton/xhtml+xml.
