To try and keep up with the times, I am revalidating some shoddy HTML 4.1 to XHTML 1.1, which I believe is a step in the right direction! :)
Apart from me wading through some of the bad HTML which I have to correct, I was thinking about how easy it is to replace mainstream code on the site with search and replace.
Kudos to Chiyo for mentioning the "search on disk" search and replace feature for notetab pro. Till then I was searching and replacing on files that were open only!
If I remember right what I've read in the other forums here, I need the following to be compliant with XHTML
-All tags in lowercase
-All tags with no closing tags are closed with a trailing slash, ie <br />
Is there any more?
It seems really easy to do the switch from HTML to XHTML if your code is already validated. If it wasnt for me wading through the HTML, it looks like it could have been a 10 minute job!
Has anyone done the switch from HTML to XHTML, and how long did it take? :)
It seems that no matter how many pages you have, or how many sites you operate, if your code formatting [webmasterworld.com] is consistent and valid too, it's a dawdle!
