XHTML 1.0 reaches Recommendation
15:45, 26 Jan 2000 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

The W3C announced the Extensible HyperText Markup Language (XHTML) 1.0 recommendation today.

XHTML 1.0 is a reformulation of HTML using XML 1.0 syntax, a first step toward making HTML capable of storing other forms of XML and more readily usable within other XML vocabularies.

After a somewhat stormy development process that resulted in the rejection of a prior proposed recommendation, XHTML 1.0 was released today to the usual applause.

There appear to be no substantive changes from the proposed recommendation.

Development of XHTML 1.1, a reformulation of XHTML 1.0 as a set of modules, continues.
