Overview

If you're a Web developer who has worked with HTML, you will find much of XHTML instantly familiar and readily usable. However, there are parts of XHTML that are derived from XML, which may be unfamiliar and perhaps a bit harder to understand. In XHTML, Chelsea Valentine and Chris Minnick provide the explanations and explorations that will help you become familiar and comfortable with the “X” in XHTML. XHTML addresses the need of working Web professionals to learn what XHTML is and how best to use it, and helps those who are contemplating making the switch from HTML to XHTML decide if and when to take the plunge. Both the authors not only write about and teach XHTML, but also consult and implement this technology as part of their workday routines. They've learned from their audiences and students what people most need to know, and what examples and illustrations best illuminate that information. That collective wisdom drives this book throughout.

XHTML or Extensible Hypertext markup Language is one of the Internet¿s newer languages. XHTML begins by giving a basic overview of what it is. The authors devote 70 pages to elements such as big, cite, superscript and subscript plus many, many others! They go on to explain the major differences between HTML and XHTML and browser requirements and compatibility issues. Other subjects included in XHTML are XSL (one chapter), Xforms (a very brief discussion), Creating Dynamic XHTML Pages (18 pages) and Working with Multimedia and Graphics (Chapter 10). In comparing XSL to CSS, there is a graphic to show when and where to use each language. Don¿t forget to read the chapter on converting existing HTML to XHTML. With a 100 plus pages of reference material AND a CD-ROM, XHTML should provide the reader with a solid footing in this up and coming language.

This is a great book for those making the transition from HTML to XHTML. Very comprehensive and well-written.
