Did you build already some pages, e.g.

cvs co .../english
cd english; make

And then look some of the generated pages with your $BROWSER and also
probably some kind of (X)HTML validator?

I'm don't know exactly what it needs to be valid XHTML, but if you
look at the .wml files, there is header such as

#use wml::debian::<something>

These files called templates you will find from
webwml/english/template/debian directory. You probably need to adjust
those files to use XHTML instead of what current HTML 4.01
Transitional, and then go trough every page and check with XHTML
validator that those are really valid XHTML.
