7. Moving to XHTML: Putting an ‘X’ into HTML

Chapter 7. Moving to XHTML: Putting an ‘X’ into HTML

image with no caption

We’ve been keeping a dirty secret from you. We know you thought you bought an HTML book, but this is really an XHTML book in disguise. In fact, we’ve been teaching you mostly XHTML all along. You’re probably wondering, just what the heck is XHTML? Well, meet eXtensible HTML – otherwise known as XHTML – the next evolution of HTML. It’s leaner, meaner, and even more tuned for compatibility with browsers on a wide range of devices. In this short little chapter we’re going to get you from HTML to XHTML in three simple steps. So, turn the page, you’re almost there... (and then we’re on to CSS).
