This is reproducible with Emacs -Q with FSF's binary for Windows.

Since nxml is better, it seems the default should be nxml-mode.

PS here's some tidbits from Lennart.

It is one of those unintentional problems that has not got the
official bug status ;-)

I wrote majmodpri.el (part of nXhtml) to take care of this kind of
problem and suggested that something like it should be included in
Emacs. There has not been any positive response to it yet.

The reason I wrote it was that this problem is much more prominent
when there are multi major modes as an alternative too. (For an xhtml
file for example you could use html-mode, nxml-mode, html-mumamo-mode,
nxhtml-mumamo-mode etc.)

I'm not sure how emacs choose modes, or the policies, mechanisms, file locations...etc, or what majmodpri.el is supposed to do. Anyway, i thought this warrant a bug report for the record. Thanks.

I've made nXML mode the default for editing XML files.
