XHTML, the New HTML

XML does pose a few problems, not the least of which is that the HTML and XML standards are almost—but not quite—compatible with one another. To smooth out these technical bumps, the W3C created a 100 percent XML-compliant version of HTML 4, called (you guessed, didn't you?) XHTML 1.

(Does that mean there will never be an HTML 5 standard? Sort of. There will undoubtedly be more tags and attributes added to HTML in the future, but the result will probably be called XHTML 2 instead of HTML 5.)
