There are two XHTML 1.0 DTDs, Transitional XHTML and
Strict XHTML.  By default, the DocBook stylesheets
produce Transitional XHTML, and it should be valid if
you supply alt attributes on all your images.
Instances of output that is not valid Transitional
XHTML should be reported as bugs.

Strict XHTML is harder.  There is currently no parameter
to turn on Strict XHTML output from the DocBook XSL
stylesheets.  It is possible to specify
the Strict DTD in the output DOCTYPE, but the output may
not be valid.  It somewhat depends on what attributes
you use in your XML files, and what parameters you use
during processing.
