Hi all,

The last thread about how to inform people on the right choice of  
languages to use on your Web site was interesting. We are all prone  
to raise issues about the languages, we are using but not often good  
reasons to promote one language. Maybe a more positive way of  
promoting would be to promote choices in particular conditions.

You are doing this, you can use HTML 4.01
You are doing that, you can use XHTML 1.0
For each case, we could add the list of limitations in user agents  
and authoring tools implementation for each languages. The problems  
that people might encounter. It would help also to show what's not  
implemented in HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0

The mistake I identify each time is to say, you better to choose  
XHTML 1.0 upon HTML 4.01 or the opposite. It doesn't give much sense.  
As I said previously I'm using XHTML 1.0 because I need it, not  
because it's fancy.

Jim, would it be in the line of a positive action?
