Trade Paperback, 408 pages.
XHTML is a re-creation of HTML based on XML, the Extensible Markup Language, which gives the web developer greater control and portability of the data displayed. This reference helps web designers become more familiar with the "X" in XHTML, learn how to convert HTML to XHTML and learn how to best use the new concepts and tools available with XHTML and XML. It also helps web developers incorporate multimedia, graphic, forms (XForms), scripts, Cascading Style Sheets, Extensible Stylesheet Language and advanced linking techniques into their XHTML documents. The reference also contains a list and descriptions of XHTML elements and attributes. An interesting chapter in the book looks at the future of XHTML and its impact on content creators, graphic designers and programmers. Familiarity with HTML will make the book easier to understand and expedite the learning process. New Riders' XHTML provides a solid introduction to XHTML and gives readers a clear understanding of the differences between HTML and XHTML. Highly recommended.
