HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is the most widely accepted language used to build websites. It is the main structure of a website. It builds tables, creates divisions, gives a heading message (In the title bar of programs), and actually outputs text. XHTML (eXtensive Hyper Text Markup Language) is the same as HTML, except it has a cleaner syntax. XHTML uses the same tags as HTML, so people who know HTML know messy XHTML. New rules apply in XHTML, such as tags always needing to be ended; Tags need to be "Nested" properly, and such. dHTML (Dynamic Hyper Text Markup Language) is not a language, but the art of using HTML, JavaScript, and CSS together to create dynamic things, such as navigation menus.

DHTML was an old term we used to describe HTML that was being played with using Javascript (or J-Script) The term was derived from "Dynamic HTML." Javascript is now very widely used, and so the term DHTML has gone by the wayside.

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

Though they are standards XHTML and DHTML both save as HTML or HTM files. It is a browser thing. Newer browsers will save the files associated with the page either in a separate directory or as a unified page, an interpretation of the copyright issues involved.

No. HTML existed before XHTML. XHTML combines XML and HTML, so it is an advancement on HTML.

HTML uses SGML-like syntax. XHTML 1.0 uses XML syntax. HTML uses HTML DOM, XHTML uses XML DOM. There are small differences between those. Other than that, they're identical. They use same tags, attributes, have same semantics. XHTML 1.0 specification is very short and refers to HTML 4 specification for all important matters.

DHTML is an extension of HTML called Dynamic HTML which uses style sheets and JavaScript. This allows you to use small animations and Dynamic menus on your webpage.

HTML is Hyper Text Markup Language and DHTML should be Dynamic HTML. Saurabh Pandey

Strony HTML is a different kind of programming language just like the various other types of HTML. There is DHTML, XHTML, HTML, CHTML, it really just depends on your personal preference and which programming language is easier for you to learn personally.

HTML and its derrivative DHTML is used to position information in a web page, and XML is used to describe that information.

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.

HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. DHTML stand for dynamic HyperText Markup Language, however DHTML is not an actual coding language. While both of them used to build web sites, DHTML is typically used to mean the combination of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and DOM.

There are 4 main differences between HTML and XHTML.In XHTML, all elements must be lowercase. In HTML, it's perfectly legal to use caps in your tags, but in XHTML all tags, elements, and attributes MUST be lowercase.All elements must have a closing tag in XHTML. If you have an empty element that doesn't have a closing tag in HTML (such as or ), you close it in XHTML by adding a forward slash to the end (like or ).All XHTML elements must be properly nested. In HTML, you can get away with this: This is some textYou can't do this in XHTML, as tags must be closed in the inverse order they were opened. In order to be valid XHTML, the above example would have to be:This is some textThe document must be properly nested. In other words, the page should start with the opening HTML tag and end within the closing HTML tag. The head information should be between the opening and closing HEAD tags, and the page content needs to be properly nested within the BODY tag.

No, XHTML is a parallel language to HTML. XHTML is a XML language definition where tags have similar meanings to corresponding HTML tags. A crude analogy would be that XHTML and HTML are half-brothers; Lot's of similarities but also distinct differences. The successor of HTML is HTML5, the successor of XHMTL is XHTML5.

DHTML is simply a combination of HTML and JavaScript, in which JavaScript is employed to add a "dynamic" aspect to the otherwise static HTML page. DHTML has fallen out of popular use, as more and more webpages have come to use it. It is rarely used in Web 2.0, which, by definition, is dynamically driven by at least a simple client side script.

HTML is in XHTML, some argue that XHTML is it's own markup
