Single file? Dozens of ways.
Most people use a templating system of some kind. I prefer Template-Toolkit. You can either resolve the templates on the server (e.g. with Perl/FastCGI, PHP, etc) or before uploading (e.g. with the TTree application that comes with Template-Toolkit).

After a decade it is still not supported by Internet Explorer (serving it as text/html and letting IE's error recovery cope with it doesn't count as support). The XHTML working group is being wound up at the end of the year. Almost no site with an XHTML Doctype would function is treated as XHTML - even the well-formed, valid ones usually have CSS or JS that depends on an HTML style interpretation of the markup.

As a client side language, XHTML has failed.
HTML 5 is the replacement for HTML 4 - but is still in draft form, and I wouldn't use it unless one of its features provided a significant benefit to a project. It does have an XML serialisation, but that is still going to make every version of IE released to date fall over.
