You should not use "application/xmhtml+xml" but
"application/xhtml+xml".  Whereas this is the MIME type that you SHOULD
use (note special meaning of the term SHOULD), you MAY use "text/html"
for XHTML versions 1.0 Transitional, and 1.0 Strict (but not XHTML2).
You SHOULD NOT use "text/html" for XHTML 1.1, but note that doing so is
not actually forbidden and many websites use it (including mine).

Yes, XHTML is XML. Use it like any other XML dialect.
