For the most part, actually, older browsers do just fine with XHTML -
probably better in many ways than they do with HTML.  How HTML compatible
do you want your XHTML?  Is the convention included by reference to HTML
4.01, or does it disappear?

Older browsers will of course choke on the CDATA section, unless of course
that goes into the commented section as well...
