There's been a lot of arguments for and against XHTML on this list 
lately, but I'd like to tell you about something that happened to me.
I just converted my personal web site from HTML 4.01 to XHTML 1.0 and 
everything worked fine on my computer.  Then, I uploaded the pages and 
validated them (they all validated).

Then, I started Internet Explorer 5 and went to my site.  I clicked on a 
link, that's when the browser crashed.  I repeated the test- it happened 
again.  I tried it on Netscape-  it looked Netscapish (ie, terrible), 
but didn't crash.
My analysis, Internet Explorer 5 is not compatible with XHTML 1.0.  I've 
read that IE 4.5 for Macintosh has serious problems with XHTML, but I 
had no idea the fairly good IE 5 for Windows would crash.
Comments and workarounds appreciated.
