Apple uses XHTML

I was quite surprised to see that Apple is slowly moving to modern Web technologies. The new iPod web pages use XHTML 1.0 with CSS2, the other pages still claim to be using HTML 4.0 Transitional (with a little bit of CSS 1). This is a big step forward for a high traffic website.
When using modern technologies, there are always compatibility issues with older software like Netscape 4.x. Even if the market share of Netscape 4 is rather small nowadays, many websites still support this browser. Apple chose to redirect Netscape 4 users directly to the iPod pages from the Apple Store, which are viewable with any Kind of browser I guess (no doctype defined).
