Just for the record: we discussed this last night, and I do not believe
that we should use the XML writer to produce XHTML, given that it is
technically incorrect to return text/xml when a browser requests

There is some document describing the problems that browsers can run
into.  The XhtmlTextWriter should be used for things where proper HTML
will be embedded in an XML document.
