I thought of a little carrot that might help improve the HTML developer
affinity for XHTML: Signed XHTML. If XHTML pages were signed in a specific

trust the content of the page.
What makes you think that your suggestion would improve acceptance of XHTML?
What is your analysis of the barriers/discouragements operate for a "typical" HTML developer even contemplating adopting XHTML? How does your suggestion help the vast majority of HTML developers who exist in a world outside XML geekdom?
I spend most of my time with XML but, to be frank, fail to see the "carrot" in your suggestion for a typical HTML developer.
