That's right, we both (Movim and SàT) use full XHTML (even if XEP-0277 
recommand XHTML-IM, this mention should be removed from the XEP now), and 
we do sanitization before displaying it. We probably need a XHTML 
sanitization good practice XEP and I may work on it with anyone interested 
but not before a while, I'm too busy for now.

I was personnaly against deprecating XHTML-IM in the previous thread (and I 
see some arguments coming back here), but I now think it's OK to do it as 
XEP-0394 is a clean and extensible alternative.

I'm still against XEP-0393 because of its mixing of text and markup, and I 
think we can achieve similar result by using XEP-0394 on the wire, and 
whatever markdown developers want to use on clients.

Time will probably set this up.

Anyway, and above the disagrements, thanks to everybody working on that 
(even for XEP-0393 that I dislike :) ) and trying to find the best solution 
to satisfy everybody or at least most of people (developers and users).
