You have got to be kidding! You can't seriously believe that IE is
better at XHTML, considering the follwing problems:
1. Presenting a save dialog when served XHTML asplication/xhtml+xml.
2. Requiring XSLT to trick it into rendering XHTML 1.0 served as
application/xml, which appears to prevent incremental rendering and
makes it exceptionally slow.
3. giving the following error when served XHTML 1.1 as application/xml:
Parameter entity must be defined before it is used. Error
'http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd'. Line 85,
They're just the ones I know about, I'm sure there would be many more.
IE certainly does not support XHTML; it doesn't even fully support
HTML4. It has only ever supported tag soup.
