To quote Dirk:
"XHTML should be an option so that when you start a new site, you can 
make the decision to do it in XHTML...
bye, Dirk"

Sounds like a call to action to me. :-)

Me personally, I don't want to wait another year for this to be 
implemented. I think it would be too painful to bear. :-)

Perhaps involving the community at large on this decision would help. 
Why not put up a poll on GL.net asking if they are willing to wait 
another month or so beyond November to re-tool the code for XHTML and a 
new theme. Judging by the response I've received to the "Feelers for a 
new theme" threads on GL.net and gllabs.org, I think folks would be 
really excited. This, coupled with the fact that there will definitely 
be a beta release, RC's and then a final release, gives ample 
opportunity to fine tune things, and not just slap something in at the 
last minute.

As the theme I am working on now stands, it is HTML 4.01 Transitional. I 
could release this version, and then 1.5 final could include the XHTML 
1.0 Transitional version.
