XHTML is a reformulation of HTML 4 as an XML 1.0 application The standard defines 3 different elements sets. This specification is based on XHTML-1.0-Transitional defined by DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd in the W3C standard XHTML 1.0 The Extensible HyperText Markup Language (Second Edition) A Reformulation of HTML 4 in XML 1.0.

Reference texts and many examples has been extracted from the W3C standard HTML 4.01 Specification.

Standard excerpt:

XHTML is a family of current and future document types and modules that reproduce, subset, and extend HTML 4. XHTML family document types are XML based, and ultimately are designed to work in conjunction with XML-based user agents.

XHTML 1.0 is the first document type in the XHTML family. It is a reformulation of the three HTML 4 document types as applications of XML 1.0.

Developers who migrate their content to XHTML 1.0 will realize the following benefits:

    • XHTML documents are XML conforming. As such, they are readily viewed, edited, and validated with standard XML tools.
    • XHTML documents can be written to operate as well or better than they did before in existing HTML 4-conforming user agents as well as in new, XHTML 1.0 conforming user agents.
    • XHTML documents can utilize applications (e.g. scripts and applets) that rely upon either the HTML Document Object Model or the XML Document Object Model
    • As the XHTML family evolves, documents conforming to XHTML 1.0 will be more likely to interoperate within and among various XHTML environments.
