Good morning boys and girls...

"XHTML ?" asked my friend "why should
I need that ? I am doin HTML 3.2 right now, and it
is really enough for me!"

I think, my friend has some right ideas.
Why should I really use another new language ?
Using a new one means work, and learning
new tags.
Also there is the problem of incompatibilty
to old browsers.

My meaning to XHTML is, that
you really should stay on it.
I recommened the use of XHTML, because
of all it possibilities. ( which are found @http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml

Just one thing you should never do:
Following a M$ standard makes you incompatibel
to other systems.

As I saw it in HTML 4.0 you took many tags
from the IE into the specification, which
only IE understands.
This is not very good for us, the Linux, Amiga, BeOS, UN*X
Apple & Co. user.

sincerly yours,

Nico Schottelius
