New XHTML Proposed Recommendation
19:42, 12 Dec 1999 UTC | Edd Dumbill

The W3C has issued a revised Proposed Recommendation for XHTML 1.0, referred back to the HTML working group earlier this year.

The new PR is reviewed favorably on XML-DEV by David Megginson, who points out the major highlights:

  • A single XHTML Namespace, http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml
  • Examples of using elements from other Namespaces inside an XHTML document
  • All element and attribute names in lower case
  • The DOCTYPE declaration is still required for strict XHTML conformance, with three different DTDs

In the rest of his message, Megginson pays credit to Tim Berners-Lee and the membership of XML-DEV for their part in the debate around XHTML.
