With the current HTML 5 Editor's Draft, using the default theme, all  
you need to do is change the DOCTYPE. Void elements can have a single  
U+002F (/) at the end, <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> is  
valid (though any other value of @xmlns, or even having it on any  
other element, is illegal).
