On some of my sites I serve XHTML as application/xhtml+xml to all 
browsers except IE (and browsers that say they can't handle it, like IE 
*should* say) and as text/html to IE. This is with XHTML 1.0 however. 
You're not supposed to do that with XHTML 1.1, but it is permitted with 
XHTML 1.0.

I wrote up a howto last year explaining how to configure Apache to do 
this. It's pretty simple. Maybe it'll be of use to you if you decide to 
stick with XHTML: <http://protempore.net/~calvins/howto/xhtml-apache/>
