I'm stating that if you try hard enough, you can create something that will 
fail in about any language.

In both HTML 3.2 and HTML 4.0, it is perfectly feasiable to design 
documents that work as intended. HTML 4.0 does not universally fail. You do 
not have to avoid substantial methods that are popularly available to make 
it not fail.

But again, let's get back to the issue at hand: is XHTML 1.0 something that 
should go to Rec.
