    Why, why, why, why are you not using xhtml? Why even bother to modernize it, if you're going to bring it up to 2001 standards in 2005?
    • by Anonymous Coward
      Because what’s important in today’s web is not XHTML but the semantic web. XHTML will not be important until XHTML 2.0 and proper application/xhtml-xml support in ie.
      • Since when did Microsoft write the standards for XHTML?

        Using XHTML now would be better than trying to retrofit the code AGAIN in the next year or so.

        You and I BOTH know Microsoft will NEVER put proper support for HTML, XHTML or anything relating to them, in IE.

          ... which is why XHTML is a non-starter for anyone who cares more about having their content read than about enabling the W3C's NIH issues (as in, HTML is based in SGML, not our beloved XML, so therefore it must be replaced). Leave XML for raw data; XHTML is a completely unnecessary tangent and ought not be encouraged.

          And look: I'm not alone! [codinginparadise.org]
