Mel, XHTML continued? ;)
Ok Mel I had a few more thoughts after our conversation the other day, so here goes :) These are some of the things that need to be considered when moving from pure HTML to XHTML (loose, transitional, or strict):
- ALT attribute (please don't say ALT 'tag'); this is REQUIRED on IMG tags - it's also a good practice to add a TITLE attribute too, the same as ALT
- Tags without ending tags REQUIRE '/' (i.e., <br> becomes <br />
- The FONT tag is deprecated, move all font styling to stylesheets!
- lower-case; ALL tags, attributes, properties etc., are to be in lower-case
I'll try to keep this updated as I remember more, and post some good links for everyone. It's not all that much different to be honest, just a few alterations are all that's required.
