Completely agree. The real problem is when a technology is oversold in
media and with great facility your reach the limits. Then one waste time
and money walking backward and beggining other way.

Well, if really need 3D, then i would not need my current GoldStar 2D
display. Star Treck holograms are not ready still ;-)

From the mozilla developers faq:

If your document mixes MathML with XHTML, you should use
application/xhtml+xml. [...] However, if you are using the usual HTML
features (no MathML) and are serving your content as text/html to other
browsers, there is no need to serve application/xhtml+xml to Mozilla. In
fact, doing so would deprive the Mozilla users of incremental display,
because incremental loading of XML documents has not been implemented yet.
Serving valid HTML 4.01 as text/html ensures the widest browser and search
engine support.
