Do you mean the "Content-Type" header?  I understood at some point
that this was a valid, and it sounds like this quote (from the second
link you posted):

  Note that XHTML 1.0 previously defined that documents adhering to
  the compatibility guidelines were allowed to be served as text/html,
  but HTML 5 now defines that such documents are HTML, not XHTML.

Keeps it valid -- except that the proper label for this is now "HTML",
and possibly affects parsing in some ways that I'd be insane to rely
on.  Right?

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
