Isn't that what XHTML transitional 'validation' has all been about? - nothing to do with serving the "correct" mime-type or whether or not pages validated XHTML1.1 strict or required XML - was it not simply a way to be "next step" ready while still getting on with the day job - e.g. lowercase tags and attributes, quoted attributes, closed elements etc.. all of these are important in other languages used in application building - why not HTML
Will HTML5 will be no more (apart from some new elements perhaps) than XHTML1 with the namespace and content-type doing the rest?
If they adopt the WhatWG working draft [whatwg.org] then it seems so
interesting times are ahead no doubt and Good to see ALL the majors involved :)
