On a related note, tidy has an -asxml switch that produces ...

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

Is *this* something that is desirable? Isn't this the eventual goal?

I tested a few docs, and they converted right over without complaining.
