Re: [xml-dev] XHTML 5 and validation

True. We now have at least three options: 1) XHTML5 with
"application/xhtml+xml", 2) Well-formed markup (xml) and lower-case
element and attribute names served with "text/html" as a subset of
HTML5. And 3) HTML5 allowing even <!docTYpe htML>.

Very nice from an XML point of view. But niceties are not enough to
win battles. If things don't work in our daily lives, fast and easy,
they end up being well kept secrets only known by the few.

It has been confirmed in this thread, that we should not expect to get
our XHTML5, option 1 or option 2, validated right away by clicking a
button as we have been used to for 15 years. Many validators will
require that we use a web-server or server-side code in order to get
our XHTML validated using the "application/xhtml+xml" mimetype. That
is a no go!

We might be lucky to find a Validator that has a lot of options, and
some of us might be lucky to have the know-how to tweak its settings,
in order to get validation without a webserver and server-side

That is not how to win battles!
