Hi Pasquale,

On previous BAD TF and EOWG call we have agreed to use HTML 4.01 to avoid the myth that accessibility can only be provided by using XHTML. Also, HTML 4.01 is currently the more widely deployed technology and more developers can relate to that.

However, it is an important point you raise and we need to ensure that we document this decision clearly to vistors of the BAD site.

Regards,
  Shadi
