I responded about that in that [webmasterworld.com] thread. XHTML is not the issue.
The irony of Microsoft's claim to standards-support is complete when you check the MSN.com site for compliance with the XHTML standard. Anyone can go to the W3C's standards validation service at [validator.w3.org...] and type in www.msn.com. The document returned demonstrates clearly that not a single document on their site adheres to W3C specifications, and many of their documents do not use XHTML at all, e.g. [careers.msn.com...]
Also, I looked at more detail at the AOL site. Can you believe that they have their <title> tag outside the <head> section of their HTML? It's true! And that is the #1 web property on the Internet! I find that repulsive.
