Gosh - so they finally made it to the W3C... Do note it's a draft only. Maybe it's time to take them a little bit seriously now. I certainly didn't until now. (Though probably just a little bit less seriously than XHTML 2 - which seems to be going nowhere much, mostly due to its - intended - lack of backwards compatibility with XHTML 1, and some serious criticism from the field. *))

Me, I'll just continue to write (generate, rather) XHTML 1, as I've been doing for about 7 years now. And HTML 5 could be a few more years in the making before that makes a standard, so it's safe to stick with the current one.

Go on, convert to XHTML already!
