Re: extending XHTML

xhtml custom dtd

  Are there other alternatives for this solution, other than
  supporting and providing a custom DTD, such that the document
  will both validate and display correctly? 

The custom dtd only need be as large as your current internal subset, it
can include the xhtml dtd by reference, so it's probably easier to
support things in that form than having an internal subset on every

A browser will correctly (not) display the internal subset if it is
browsing xhtml rather than html (in particular if it is sent with an xml
mime type). mozilla  for example automatically does the right thing
in this case, IE requires a stylesheet to display XHTML if using an XML
parser (it can be a one-line stylesheet that simply copies the entire
document). So that is another alternative.

The third of course is simply omit the doctype from the distributed
files (since the browser won't use it anyway).
