I would be a bit careful about moving to XHTML 1.1 without analyzing all
of the issues.  XHTML 1.1 is not really the same thing as HTML; for
example, it's not supposed to be served out as text/html.  Many browsers
don't really support XHTML 1.1 yet.

XHTML 1.0 or HTML 4.01 Strict are still the best choices for portable
HTML.  Future versions of XHTML are not intended to be backward compatible
upgrades to HTML, but instead are moving the standard intentionally in a
completely different direction towards a purer XML-based markup world that
not all browsers are prepared for.
