The XHTML Basic document type includes the minimal set of modules 
required to be an XHTML host language document type, and in addition 
it includes images, forms, basic tables, and object support. It is 
designed for Web clients that do not support the full set of XHTML

and settop boxes. The document type is rich enough for content
