[Bug 6354] New: XHTML5 websites validate as "HTML5" instead of "XHTML5"


           Summary: XHTML5 websites validate as "HTML5" instead of "XHTML5"
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: dean@dean.org.nz
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

XHTML5 web sites are being validated as "HTML5" instead of "XHTML5". The
validator is treating these XHTML pages as XHTML5 internally, but is giving the
success message as "HTML5" instead of "XHTML5".

Like Sam's site:


Such sites should be given a success message something like: "valid XHTML5".
