Great - now we just need to find someone to do it :-)

Personally, I'd rather go for XHTML1, unless there are any pressing reasons not
to; apart from lower-casing the tags, the changes needed are fairly trivial. I
looked at this briefly a few months ago, and apart from the changes in single
tags (<br> etc), everything the Validator complained about consisted of genuine
errors - wrongly escaped special characters etc.

Does anyone have any objections to XHTML1 over HTML4? The extra effort is
minimal, and won't break anything, but it does show up some other errors which
need fixing.
