    Guys xhtml, 4.01 strict is a waste of time, innovate don't regress! Also it's ok to use tables when you are displaying tabular data (a calendar, stock chart, etc.). CSS-driven and standards-based design is about semnatic, relevant markup, not simply ejecting tables.

    May I refer you to some important reading material:

    Those designers that you've linked to (seem to) no little (and care little) about the reasons why xhtml isn't really xml since it's not served as xml, thereby making all of their reasons for using xhtml over html moot.

    HTML 4 is just as semantically complete as xhtml, and if xhtml isn't served as xml you get zero benefits from the xml-ness of the document.

    HTML 4 was the best choice for this and I applaud the slashcode team of making the right choice, not the popular one.
