XHTML *is* HTML, with stricter rules (e.g., all non-singleton
tags must be closed;  only HTML4 tags can be used, etc.) and
XML namespaces -- ZPT uses the namespaces to attach dynamic
behavior to individual notes in the template's DOM.  At any
rate, the idea is that normal browsers will do fine rendering
XHTML, since the "ignore what I don't understand" rule for HTML
is how they operate.

DW messes up because it steps on the ZPT-namespace attributes
when saving the template back to Zope (Amaya strips them

Adobe's GoLive is our current best candidate:  it does both
XHTML and WebDAV very well.
