Well... the idea behind xhtml is to have a structured page, so
it is easier for browsers to parse it, and there is nothing that
it can make other browsers to understand it... and about css, if
a thing is not implemented, then it is not drawn! Well... then,
there is xhtml transitional, which is simply a strict html, so
it allows font's and the like...
