Part I: Learning XHTML > Adding Semantics to Structure

Chapter 2. Adding Semantics to Structure

In the first chapter you spent a considerable amount of time learning about the structure of HTML, XHTML, and your documents. The purpose of this was more than just to provide you with a nice visual of building blocks, or nesting Tupperware containers. Instead, we've been leading up to the discussion in this chapter. In this chapter, you learn how the structural components of XHTML differ from each other, why those distinctions are important, and what the characteristics of each component are meant to tell us.

This chapter teaches you:

  • How semantics define XHTML behavior

  • Document organization using headings

  • How to order and group data using lists

  • How to emphasize data using structure
