Chapter 1. XHTML: Giving Structure to Content > The Times They Are A-Changing

The Times They Are A-Changing

To get a sense of how far from standards compliance most of today's Web sites are, we need to take a quick look back at HTML's development and examine the difficulties most sites face today.

In today's world of information delivery, where you want to get your content out on not just today's standards-compliant browsers, but on cell phones, PDAs, and even the door of your viewers' refrigerators, you may be unpleasantly surprised to find that your Web site's content is tightly locked in a million yards of old presentational code.
