But how does a Web browser running on a Harvard Architecture stop XSS
errors? Code and data mixing happens within HTML and not at the binary
machine level. You're now saying that we should ditch HTML with its mixture
of tags, text, and script code are you?

Kids these days.
Harvard architecture, unlike von Neumann architecture, had a strict
progrma and data store and representation. It would have been impossible
program to modify its own or other executable material. Data was not
so SQL injection and XSS would have been impossible. (So would a lot of
things, but ...)
