You might want to look at this site:

I vaguely recall Sjoerd tried to run his entire site as you've  
described and it lasted a few weeks before he ran into enough  
problems that he now does server-side XSLT to HTML 4 unless you click  
the "Try XHTML 2.0" button, which turns off the server-side XSLT.
