I guess I don't have a server that will deliver up Content-Type: application/xhtml+xml, so I haven't been able to test that. Is there a way to coerce that for a browser? Do you have an example page that does that?

HTML5 is a resource with Content-Type: text/html where the start of the
file reads (case insensitive) "<!DOCTYPE html>".

XHTML5 is a resource with Content-Type: application/xhtml+xml where the
start of the file may start with (case insensitive) "<!DOCTYPE html>".
Note that technically DOCTYPE declaration is not required for XML (or
XHTML5) files.

The latter is a real XML file as opposed to HTML5 variant that should
use HTML5 parser if available.
