Further then what?

Given the state of browser support, I'm not convinced XHTML is a good choice (or ever has been) for most use cases. As for HTML 5, the specification is a draft, a lot of stuff in it has very limited support in browsers, so in most cases I would say 'no'. In some limited use cases it does provide benefits over HTML 4.01, but they need to be judged on a case by case basis.

The Markup Validator already supports it (although the specification is subject to change, so it might not be entirely correct).
