If your using IE7 its very strict indeed!
I was writing something the other day using IE "conditional comments" e.g.
When I accidentally put a slash in the "closing" tag e.g.
The site I was working was declared as XHTML1.0 Strict and in IE7 it displayed a blank screen. It was fine in all other versions of IE and any other decent browser TM. It took a bit of poking around to find the erroneous slash but just like anything else it was obvious once you saw it. The main problem was that it was in a conditional comment block for IE5 so I didn't check it straight away.
It just struck me that IE7 is so strict it refuses to render "bad" xhtml when its not even part of the xhtml standard!
