It does, though, and allows you to do just the kind of things we've been
discussing here.  You can either extend or subset.  You could even add <foo>
elements if you'd like (although I don't know why you would *normally* want
to, since WWW browsers don't exactly grok <foo>).  

Another often-cited example is to allow for 'target="_blank"'.  Google for

	target "xhtml 1.1"

Personally, I just find it easier to [hack the 1.0 Strict DTD][1] for such
things.  Despite occasional rumors to the contrary, they won't lock you up
for it.  :)
