XHTML is intended for web pages, and similar narrative documents meant for humans to read. Because it's XML based it's also easier for software to read. However it's not a general purpose solution for data formats like XML is.
XHTML is discussed in Item 23, "Reuse XHTML for generic narrative content", and Item 46, "Tidy Up Your HTML"
