Theoretically, you could write a script to run on your server that could be used with ajax to pull the site into a div. The script would have to adjust all the links so it would not be easy.
This would be a lot of work, and might be very slow - probably not a good idea.
Google, Yahoo and Microsoft are usually considered as having the best web developers in the world developing their sites. They are noted for embracing the latest technologies, such as AJAX and were early adopters of CSS. Yet, each delivers their pages as HTML, not XHTML. Do you think that says something?
They may deliver content as HTML because Internet Explorer will only display XHTML served as HTML.
The ubiquitious browser may be the reason for restricting pages to HTML :-(
Sigh, IE is really slowing down the Web.
You get no advantage in attempting to validate against a strict DTD (XHTML or HTML) when dealing with this kind of situation - especially as the
iframe solution is valid in both XHTML 1.0 Transitional and HTML 4.01 Transitional. You could try using
object instead, but what's the point? You would reduce the functionality of your site for no tangible benefit.
Just switch to a transitional DTD, use an inline frame for the astore, and your site will remain valid.
I want to use the last format, if XHTML 1.1 was supported by IE 6 I would use it too.
I'm not sure how the modules offered by xhtml 1.1 [w3.org] would help the situation you describe. Instead of paying attention to the release date, I'd say just use the tool created for the the job you want to do. How about XHTML 1.0 Frameset [w3.org]?

lol man, if I go with lower than Strict I'll be stuck there forever because Strict and above ban the frames.
Using the last standard is a requirement, so looks like I'll have to just link to the store at amazon.com
>>>..Using the last standard is a requirement
Who is requiring it?
A Strict Doctype is not synonymous with a strictly correct site
There is a choice of DTD's, this choice does not equate to going "forward or back", rather you choose the one that fits ~ there are Doctypes that invoke Quirks rendering mode, and those that invoke strict rendering mode again you choose the one that fits, you put the glory button at the bottom which validates that you've been aware enough to check and you indeed validate to the recommendation, you've chosen the one that fits
If I were to walk into a shop knowing I want a size 6 to fit (cos the latest supermodel standard says it's best!), but only a 10 does, is it better to squeeze into a 6 or be true to the norm and look great in a 10?
> Who is requiring it?
Anyway, frames are a bad browsing experience, I don't want to use them.
