Basic SMIL Code Guidelines

Because SMIL is an application of XML—just like XHTML—you'll notice a lot of syntactical rules that are familiar. SMIL rules include the following:

  • Tags must be written in lowercase only.

  • Each opening tag must have a corresponding closing tag.

  • Self-closing tags are allowed, such as <meta name = "copyright" contents = "name" />.

  • Smile files must have the SMIL extension at the end:

    .smi or .smil.

  • Spaces are not allowed in the file name, use an underscore instead.

  • Comment tags are allowed.
