Chapter 6. Assembly-Line Acceleration: R... > XHTML, the Wave of the Future

XHTML, the Wave of the Future

As you may know, HTML 4.01 is the latest version of HTML and it is also the last version. HTML has been replaced with XHTML, which isn’t even one quarter as scary as it may seem—especially with Dreamweaver’s support for XHTML. If you’re starting from scratch, XHTML is pretty easy because Dreamweaver detects the XHTML doctype and makes an effort to write compliant code. You can give HTML documents a quick transformation to XHTML by using the File > Convert > XHTML command. After Dreamweaver has made the changes, you may be alerted that some images still need Alt text. You will have to add the Alt text manually. Unless you’re working in a file that contains an XHTML doctype, Dreamweaver won’t help you write compliant code; so be extra careful to keep an eye on your code—“Do You Validate?” in Chapter 9 will help you—especially when working in library item files or server-side include files.
