XHTML stands for Extensible HyperText Markup Language.

It is a language that branches off of HTML, combining the use of XML syntax with HTML markup; all tags and attributes must be lowercase, all tags must be closed, and tags must be nested properly (as to not overlap one another in a shift).

The requirements to comply with XHTML standards force the use of CSS in the place of specific tags to establish cross-browser compatibility on styles. These standards are issued by the W3C.

XHTML is compatible with all (if not, most) modern browsers.

XHTML stands for EXtensible HyperText Markup Language XHTML will gradually replace HTML. XHTML is a stricter and cleaner version of HTML. XML was designed to describe data and HTML was designed to display data. XHTML combines data design and description. * XHTML elements must be properly nested * XHTML elements must always be closed * XHTML elements must be in lowercase * XHTML documents must have one root element

The requirement for a valid XHTML is that all the tags should be closed. This is actually the difference between HTML and XHTML.

User Avatar

When writing XHTML, yes! Valid XHTML tags and attributes (but not values) must be lowercase. When referring to XHTML in other languages like CSS or JavaScript, case sensitivity is usually present.

HTML and XHTML are two different languages used for web and application design. XHTML was a popular choice from about the year 2000, to 2011. HTML 5 is intended to replace XHTML. XHTML followed the basic rules of XML-based languages. HTML (both prior and since) do not.

According to an IBM document ( http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/x-ffox15.html ) XHTML 1.1 is supported by Firefox: "Mozilla Firefox 1.0 supports XHTML 1.0 Strict, Transitional, and Frameset, as well as XHTML 1.1 which is based on modularization of XHTML 1.0 Strict. XHTML 2.0 is still in the working draft stage. Some developers wonder how well XHTML 2.0 will be adopted because it's such a significant change from HTML and XHTML 1.x. I recommend that Web developers targeting Firefox (such as for embedded applications) serve XHTML 1.1. Unfortunately, this may not yet be practical for developers targeting the general Web."

The XHTML Transitional Document Type is one of the three XHTML DocTypes.XHTML Transitional DocTypeXHTML Strict DocTypeXHTML Frameset DocTypeHTML also has three Document Types: Transitional, Strict, and Frameset.The Document Types were created to set guidelines for correct XHTML markup coding. These are "Rules" that you can follow to validate your page, to make sure you are righting "Correct" XHTML.Any page can be assigned to a Document Type by typing in a !DocType tag in the very first line of an HMTL / XHTML document, like this one:This !DocType is for XHTML Transitional.Although it is assigned to the Document Type, that does not mean it complies with it's rules.To see if it complies with the rules, send a link to the document (URL's only, no local files) at the official validation website.

The correct XHTML for a paragraph would open the paragraph with a triangular bracketed p and close the paragraph with a triangular bracketed forward slash p. The tags must be in lower case in XHTML.
