    XHTML

    XHTML is an XML compatible version of HTML that was promulgated by the W3C on the 26th of January 2000. Here is a link to a sample page using XHTML: [ sample.xhtml ] Use this to test your browser.

    The specification is at [ http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/REC-xhtml1-20000126/ ]

    The W3 Consortiuum support the Web and provide [ http://w3schools.com/ ] as a family of tools for learning the technology.

    If I understand XML correctly the main changes will be that

    1. (1) All tags will have lower-case identifiers,
    2. (2) There will be no optional omitting of end tags from certain structures like <p> and <br>,
      (3)Endless tags will have the XML format <img ...../> or <br></br>.
      (4)An attribute like ISMAP must be written like this ismap="ismap"
    3. (5)All attribute values must be quoted.
      (6) An id attribute will be used instead of name.
