Part II: XHTML Style and Structure > XHTML as the Bridge to XML

Chapter 10. XHTML as the Bridge to XML

Back at the beginning of this book, in Chapter 1, "XHTML Fundamentals," we talked about how the W3C recognized it needed some sort of transition between the HTML most Web authors were used to working with, and XML, the new language that provided a framework for customized language definitions and new markup vocabularies. The job of making that transition was given to XHTML. XHTML 1.0 takes on many of the traits of XML, while retaining backward compatibility with HTML 4, acting as that metaphoric bridge between the two technologies.

This chapter teaches you:

  • How XML provides more freedom for document authors

  • What constitutes well-formedness

  • How languages can be defined using document type definitions

  • How a new XML-based technology, schemas, can also define XML-based vocabularies
