Unformatted text preview: HTML & XHML 4 th Edition We give details for all the elements of the HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0 standards, plus the variety of interesting and useful extensions to the language - some proposed standards - that the popular browser manufacturers have chosen to include in their products, such as: Cascading Style Sheets Java and JavaScript Layers Multiple columns [1] HTML is case-insensitive with regard to tag and attributes names, but XHTML is case-sensitive . And some HTML items like source filenames, are case-sensitive, so be careful. <html> Function: Delimits a complete HTML document Attributes: DIR VERSION LANG End tag: </html>; (may be omitted in HTML). Dont omit it! Contains: head_tag , body_tag, frames HTML and XHTML are fairly intertwined languages. XHTML 1.0 is identical to HTML 4.01; HTML going away?-> No, obviously. HTML is being subsumed and modularized as part of Extensible Markup Language (XML). Its new name is XHTML, Extensible Hypertext Markup Language. HTML only offers a limited set of document creation primitives and is hopelessly incapable of handling non- traditional content like chemical formulae, musical notation, or mathematical expressions. Nor can it well support alternative display media, such as handheld computers or intelligent cellular phones, for instance. To address these demands, the W3C developed the Extensible Markup Language (XML) standard. XMLcompliant languages deliver information that can be parsed, processed, displayed, sliced, and diced by the many different communication technologies that have emerged since the Web sparked the digital communication revolution a decade ago. XHTML is HTML reformulated to adhere to the XML standard. It is the foundation language for the future of the Web. Lynx is a once-popular text-only browser for Unix systems. CGI and Java programs work closely with HTML documents and run with or alongside browsers.
