XHTML is currently an issue with rather passionate supporters on both sides.  
I'm generally a supporter of XHTML, but many of the opposing viewpoints are 
valid concerns.  Since there aren't any issues with using HTML 4.01, I would 
recommend sticking with it on fedora.redhat.com for now.

I don't see any reason we couldn't use UTF-8 for the HTML documents, and I 
would support making that change.
