There is no nxhtml.el bundled with Emacs. It is nXml, not nXhtml, that is bundled with Emacs 23.

nXhtml is using nXml and nxml-mode is derived from nxhtml-mode.

When the load routines for nXhtml discovere that you are using a version of Emacs that includes nXml it will use the version that is included in Emacs. (Otherwise it uses the version that comes with nXhtml and is the original version from James Clark.)

If there is, what you probably need to do is make sure your locally
