HTML And XHTML; What Are The Main Differences?
Do they differ much, or is XHTML just a slightly updated version of HTML? For example, would someone be able to pass an an XHTML exam if they only knew HTML?
Edit: So is XHTML basically just a more strict version of HTML?


HTML and XHTML are both different because XHTML is XML based. So that means that XHTML has to be nested properly. Well, you can learn more at http://www.w3schools.com but that's the only difference I know. Lol


See it
XHTML is a version of the XML family and basically as you mentioned it basically forces users to be cleaner in their coding.


That said the newer version HTML5 simply abandons XHTML as the W3C consortium couldn't complete it and reverts back to allowing you to do what you wish. Which I find pointless. I learn HTML5 because I have to not because I want to. I find its features pointless and it basically just gives us more ways to mess things up. It does house a few good features especially for the more tablet / phone driven web.
