isn't xhtml dead now they have moved away from it and back to html?

I use XHTML convention when I create HTML 5 pages. I find that my web page coding is cleaner. There is also XHTML 5, which is just HTML 5 with XHTML rules added, but I don't use it because I don't know how supported it is.

 

I personally like XHTML. It makes code much cleaner, which makes it easier to troubleshoot other people's code. I think it was a mistake for HTML 5 to allow sloppy coding!

I realise this an old quote, but I've only just seen it. "XHTML5" is not supported in any way shape or form by any respectable authority, especially not the W3C.

HTML5 doesn't "allow" sloppy coding, sloppy coders do. Are you trying to say every XHTML declared document you've come across is easy to read? I don't see any justification for HTML documents to be strictly XML-compliant.
