Lack of support for XHTML is a fact of life on the web in 2008. Prior to the 3.0 series of Firefox the XHTML processor in Gecko was so poor that Mozilla’s own engineers recommended against it; no version of Internet Explorer up to, and including, IE 8 support XHTML at all, and a number of other browsers such as Lynx were never written to handle XML in the first place.
The above quote comes from XHTML?—?myths and reality by Tina Holmboe, a member of the XHTML Working Group.
It is a nice piece that delves into:
- The Purpose of XHTML
- XHTML and the Content Type
- Strictly XHTML
- Lack of support
