which (assuming you have the right namespace bound to xhtml:) is the
same thing, and it will render correctly in a system that is rendering
xhtml (eg firefox or opera, if you are serving it as
application/xhtml+xml) However it isn't DTD-valid (because DTD don't
know about namespaces) and it won't render on a system like IE which
knows nothing about XHTML and just renders the file as HTML by ignoring
small syntactic differences like /> empty element syntax, but falling
over large syntactic differences like prefixes.
