Chapter Five. Modern Markup > Which XHTML Is Right for You?

Which XHTML Is Right for You?

In this chapter and throughout this book, we will focus on XHTML 1.0 and emphasize XHTML 1.0 Transitional, which is the most forgiving flavor of XHTML, the most compatible with existing development methods, and the easiest to learn and transition to.

Many standards geeks prefer XHTML 1.1 Strict, and there's nothing wrong with it, but it is less compatible with the past and it is properly served with a MIME type that causes some popular current browsers to misbehave. Additionally, converting old-school web pages to XHTML 1.1 Strict takes more work and requires more rethinking than converting to XHTML 1.0 Transitional. For many readers of this book, XHTML 1.0 Transitional is likely to be the best choice for the next few years.
