From the Author
Extensible Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML) is the next generation of HTML, destined to replace HTML as the common format for exchanging documents over the Web. XHTML combines the familiar HTML vocabulary with the structures and extensibility of XML, the Extensible Markup Language. By adding a critical layer of predictability to HTML documents, XHTML opens new possibilities in document processing, creation, and storage, and makes possible an orderly approach to adding new functionality to documents built with the HTML vocabulary.
Designed for developers who already have a firm grasp on HTML and Web development, XHTML: Moving Toward XML focuses on the changes between HTML and XHTML, not the basics of Web development. If you're moving from HTML to XHTML, rather than learning XHTML from scratch, this book will provide you with the key information you need rather than basic tutorials on HTML vocabulary.
On the other hand, XML remains a somewhat mysterious topic to many Web developers. XHTML: Moving Toward XML provides a detailed explanation of the impact XML has had on XHTML, without demanding that readers have prior XML experience. By focusing on the core XML technologies used by XHTML, this book gives developers an opportunity to learn about the heart of XML without depending on some of XML's more mystical features.

The concept behind the xhtml 1.0 spec is relatively simple. You must perform the following: close all your tags, include the xhtml dtd, use all lower case letters, use CSS instead of the deprecated formatting tags, and put script in cdata sections. The book required 304 pages to make these points, as it showed how each would impact 12 different browsers. On the positive side, this book was very concise and well written. At one sitting, I completed over 200 pages. It was truly enjoyable to read and the topics retained my interest.
Overall, I give this book four-stars. The only negative being the large quantity of filler content. The book was perfect otherwise.
