you can understand why someone trying to learn xhtml is going
to wonder "so, what's the point of the doctype then?"

why am i not surprised that internet explorer and netscape are forgiving
(rhetorical question)

does anyone know of browsers that display strict as strict?

personally, i found the switch to xhtml strict quite easy --
frustrating at times, but pretty straightforward

also, see this article --

  The XHTML Transition: It's not that difficult

the rumour that you have to give up tables for layout 
to use xhtml is not true
