Part IV: The Future of XHTML > Subsetting XHTML: XHTML Basic

Chapter 17. Subsetting XHTML: XHTML Basic

When people think about the flexibility that an extensible language like XHTML offers, it's easy to forget that you don't necessarily have to add to the language, that you can instead subtract from it, or make it more restrictive.

XHTML Basic is the first XHTML Family Member vocabulary to be published by the W3C that takes this approach. Its intent is to act as a basic platform for further development in vocabularies used on small footprint devices.

This chapter teaches you:

  • How small footprint devices are being used to access the Internet

  • What kinds of devices are gaining in popularity

  • How to convert an existing HTML document to XHTML Basic

  • How XHTML Basic compares to other XHTML document types
