Content-Type soup

So here I am, validating all my pages as XHTML 1.0, when I read these links:

  • Content-typing XHTML
  • Sending XHTML as text/html Considered Harmful

Basically, XHTML 1.0 isn’t mature enough to use on the web. Use HTML 4.01 instead.

The problem is that I’d like my blog to be readable on mobile devices, who expect XHTML content. And the mod_rewrite trickery mentioned is way overkill according to me.

Who knew it was such hard work being a good Netizen?
