Re: [Fwd: ATTN: Please comment on XHTML (before it's too late)]
As the developer of web content management software, and the webmaster for over a dozen active websites, here's what I think XHTML should be. 1. A tightening up of HTML. Eliminate the anomalies, like <li>, <img>, <p> that in HTML can appear without balancing </li>, </img>, </p> tags. XHTML pages should be well-formed XML, with mods to HTML to bring it into well-formedness. That's it. Nothing more. Anything more than that would be totally unmanageable for my company. (We're already in fire-fighting mode virtually 100 percent of the time.) Dave ----- Original Message ----- From: Ann Navarro <ann@w...> To: W.
