Yeah, XHTML is better, harder to code, but cleaner!

Actually it isn't required that you switch to XHTML just yet, but it's prefered.

Furthermor XHTML is not by any means harder to code. It's cleaner, stricter, and much easier to edit.

Everything is hard in the beginning but gets easier the more you do it. Kinda like anal **, if you will forgive the weird analogy.

XHTML is indeed harder to code but it is always sweet challenge to learn new stuff and code cleaner and better!

Well after sometime coding at school XHTMl pages I kinda like it. If it was not for XHTMl I would have spent like a whole day editing a website I had for an assignment, thanks to XHTML I just edited the CSS and everything changed :D

There is nothing more satisfying than getting a whole website validated as XHTML strict.... (ok, i exaggerate)

True, but still. Even if it validates doesn't mean its following the standards 100%. Until the MIME-type issues are solved I'm gonna stick to transitional.

I find XHTML easier, I started learning that by myself and I got into a web design course at school and they were teaching HTML and I found it harder to use HTML since I know more about XHTML.

It usually isn't such a bad thing if your page fails validation. When I write pages, the only errors there are are the ones that were built into the awful template that was provided for me.

Besides, not all web browsers actually follow the standards themselves.
