XHTML 1.0: Marking up a new dawn | February 15, 2001 | “So what exactly is XHTML 1.0 and what does it mean to the Web developer? I'll start with the W3C's description: XHTML 1.0 is a reformulation of HTML as an XML application. This means that if you're authoring a document in XHTML 1.0, you are applying the rules and concepts inherent to XML to your Web markup. The dangling question naturally is: Can XHTML 1.0 be used to mark up my Web documents today? The answer is a resounding 'yes!' All you need to do is learn how to structure documents properly, choose the correct document type definition (DTD) for your needs, and learn a few new ways of managing your code development.”

XHTML-to-RSS Extractor | August 24, 2000 | “This service uses a generic webdata transformation service (an XSLT server) to convert from a dialect of XHTML to the proposed RSS 1.0 channel format. Goal: author in XHTML, syndicate in RSS. ...Specifically, we provide a Web form that you can use to turn certain kinds of HTML document into the proposed RSS 1.0 channel / syndication format. This approach is designed to free content authors from the technical detail of evolving formats such as RSS, WAP/WML, RDF etc. Instead of learning dozens of new acronyms, content creators can produce XHTML documents, and have software tools do the rest.”

Introduction to XHTML: Differences with HTML 4 | July 11, 2000 | “XHTML? Find out how the XHTML 1.0 Recommendation, successor to HTML4, can help you prepare your site for the Web of the future with this article by WDVL's founder, Alan Richmond. Learn what XHTML is all about, why you will want to learn to use it, and where it's going to take the Web.”

Introduction to XHTML, with eXamples | Feb 9, 2000 | “XHTML 1.0 is the first step toward a modular and extensible web based on XML (Extensible Markup Language). It provides the bridge for web designers to enter the web of the future, while still being able to maintain compatibility with today's HTML 4 browsers. It is the reformulation of HTML 4 as an application of XML. It looks very much like HTML 4, with a few notable exceptions, so if you're familiar with HTML 4, XHTML will be easy to learn and use. XHTML 1.0 was released on January 26th as a Recommendation by the W3C.”

XHTML protocol gets thumbs up from Net group | Jan 29, 2000 | “Traditional HTML — the computer language commonly referred to as the lingua franca of the Web — was officially put out to pasture [recently] with the introduction of its successor: XHTML. XML, also a W3C recommendation, lets anyone define new Web languages and tag digital documents to make it easier for computers to read and manipulate them. Fortunately for Web markup pioneer HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), XHTML is 'backwards-compatible' — meaning that Web developers will not have to rewrite their pages in the new markup language. In addition, most browsers currently in use will be able to read XHTML documents — such as the W3C's home page — without an upgrade.” Via zeldman.com.

XHTML™ 1.0: The Extensible HyperText Markup Language | Jan 28, 2000 | A reformulation of HTML 4 in XML 1.0. This is my favorite part, from the Differences with HTML 4 section: “4.1 Documents must be well-formed.” Good luck! Anyway, this is how Jeffrey Zeldman summed it up: “One language (like HTML, but better) that lets you create sites that work on cell phones as well as the desktop. Sites that can include text, database functionality (think: Amazon.com) and even lush media like moving images and music. The next few years should be very interesting.”

xhtml.org | Archive | “XHTML is an acronym for 'eXtensible HyperText Markup Language,' a reformulation of HTML 4.0 as an XML 1.0 application. XHTML provides the framework for future extensions of HTML and aims to replace HTML in the future.”
