I guess I should apologize for beeing more interested in facts than
applauding to your personal opinion then.

So people do not care about how broken HTML tools are but should care a
lot about how broken XHTML tools are. That does not make all that much
sense to me.

Well, you still fail to explain how this XML+XSLT+CSS thing serves as a
replacement for HTML or is better than using XHTML which seems to be
your point. CSS is clearly relevant to such users, but your argument so
far is that XML is not relevant as otherwise XHTML would seem to be very
relevant spite your claim and how XSLT is relevant you still have to
explain. It seems to me you are just trying to distract from the
original discussion by introducing new use cases.
