Is XHTML bad for you?

Posted by Brian in Accessibility, Browsers, News, web (April 17th, 2007)

What do you do when you are confronted with the possibility that everything you know is wrong, or that you’re doing things not because they’re good, but because everyone else is doing it?

It seems that there are issues with using XHTML instead of HTML, and I think this is something that any web developer needs to investigate further.

From the article:

If you’re a web developer, you’ve probably heard about XHTML, the markup language developed in 1999 to implement HTML as an XML format. Most people who use and promote XHTML do so because they think it’s the newest and hottest thing, and they may have heard of some (usually false) benefits here and there. But there is a lot more to it than you may realize, and if you’re using it on your website, even if it validates, you are probably using it incorrectly.

This website uses XHTML 1.0 Transitional, apparently incorrectly.
