This is plain wrong. Whether or not the server *can* send
 "Content-Type: application/xhtml+xml" has nothing to do
with the user agent (browser or validator).


Your page has:

|  Content-Type: text/html
|  <meta http-equiv="content-type"
|           content="application/xhtml+xml; charset=utf-8" />

You cannot set the content-type with such a meta fake:

Please stay away from XHTML 1.1 - you do not understand it.
