The Complete Guide to XHTML

xhtml logoXHTML, which stands for eXtensible HyperText Markup Language, is a XML based document format designed to provide the same functionality as HTML, the common format used by web pages. By conforming to the XML standard, XHTML documents can be parsed, modified and queried using existing XML tools and programming libraries.

Most modern web browsers support the XHTML format, with the notable exception being early versions of Internet Explorer, which will prompt users to download the file instead of displaying it as a web page.

This guide will show you the differences between XHTML and HTML and lists some of the best applications for creating XHTML documents.
