I think XHTML is obsolete with HTML 5...

XHtml isn't just obsolete, it was completly abandonned, for benefits of Html5 coming out and development ^^ As suggested by @Grabriel Ruiz, XHtml is more strict than Html wich is more permissive ( XHtml is based on XML, based on SGML, and Html is directly based on SGML ), so XHtml is hardiest to write, and no more used: the question of knowing which one is better otherwise is no more relevant ;P
