I would love to say yes, but then the danger is not actually getting the 
move to XHTML2 done. We keep agreeing it should be done (for around 2 
years now), but we seem to be failing in actually tackling the job 
because it is such a major task.

At present I am thinking the only way it will ever happen is if we have 
a complete rewrite of Forrest from the bottom up.

Personally, I think the only way it is ever going to happen, with the 
current method of working, is if an individual just does it. How long it 
will be before one of us has that kind of time is anyones guess.

Therefore, I (that is, me as an individual, this is not necessarily the 
view of the community) would recommend using XDoc for fear of waiting 
forever to make XHTML2 usable.
