XHTML strict coding is good but how many browsers support it fully?

The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

This site just had two errors in the XHTML validation process, but I guess they are quite small problems easily fixable. One wrongly typed attribute (capitals) and a missing 'alt' attribute on a <img> tag.
It really bugged me when my computer teacher taught HTML as html, not XHTML. I mean, if you are going to be teaching, say, video-editing, you would go digital, not analog. (ARRGH analog!) I hope schools pick up on teaching XHTML- standards are important.
It was funny when I would help my classmates, my code was obvious in lower case, their's was all upper case!
I got some excellent results with XHTML today. But of course, I am still not totally comfortable using <DIV> tags and CSS elements which control them. However, it seems a much, much better way than tables because you avoid so much typing and repeating formatting instructions.
Everything is stored in CSS and makes the resulting XHTML file look very neatly coded indeed!
If you want a really good example of what you can do with valid XHTML and CSS, check out the CSS Zen Garden. It has a collection of style sheets that you can swap between to give the site a radically different look, all without changing a single line of HTML.
