      Because the W3C says so in the HTML spec.

      Unfortunately yes. That or you wade through XHTML-m12n (a major mistaken,
      IMO). Either way, you'll need to use a namespace for it (which means I need
      to add a namespace parser to my software, which is more complication than I
      need right now).
