It is true that there are XHTML snippets hardcoded in the WP core. But
it would be a matter of a couple hours to find and replace that code.
(This would also be required on each upgrade.) Then you would need time
to create the template, which can also range from a couple hours when
taking and adapting a simple existing theme, up to a week and more when
creating a new and sophisticated theme.
