Chapter 5. Defining XHTML Syntax > Syntax and Structure

Syntax and Structure

To build a strong understanding of XHTML, we look to the structure of the markup language itself. You might remember the painful task of diagramming sentences in grammar school. You might already know that working with XHTML, although similar, isn't quite as painful. However, it does follow certain rules of order.

XHTML is really quite logical, unlike the English language (and many other languages, for that matter). Certainly, there are exceptions to rules, and there are modifications or interpretations of those rules. However, after a sense of the basic structure is intact, it's easy to see that XHTML is simply a set of logical pieces that make up a fairly sensible language.
