Most of the web developers I've worked with just edit tags by hand. If it
displays OK in the browser, they're done. So I'm not sure how much of a dent
tool support will make (though I'm sure it would help).

I'm sure, though, that if XHTML introduced some new innovative mechanism to
deluge the user with ads, that would certainly provide impetus for most
sites on the net to move to XHTML.
