  Just looking at my Web news today I ended up fetching


  First reaction: ah ah a major site moving to xhtml
  Second reaction: hum it formats okay on my NS browser, interesting

But the following was far less brilliant:

  - it fails passing even simple WFC in the 3rd META tag (" not escaped
    in a attribute delimited with ").
  - all the tags are uppercase while XHTML is lowercase
  - no DOCTYPE

  Since it's served as text/html, one could argue that it's just one
more incorect HTML page the Web, I just hope that nobody sold them
XML tools producing this, and that it's just the result of early 
on-going efforts to move to a clean XML format ...
