|Ian Hickson, a member of the Mozilla.org Browser Standards Compliance QA team and an invited expert in the W3C CSS Working Group, explains why XHTML should not be sent as text/html: [hixie.ch...] |
So it appears that even though the XHTML "standards" are dated 2000, that it still might be best to stick with HTML 4.01 for now.
Lucky for us, the DOCTYPE is an include file, so won't take but a few minutes to change it, at least for now.
We have not seen any problems yet with the pages that we used the XHTML DOCTYPE on, but it looks like there are enough potential problems that it is safer for now to stick with 4.01.
