The X-Philes # 54

I told you I'd post an update when/if my site was accepted in the X-Philes archive. Well, Evan was so kind as to write me today, notifying me that he had taken a look at the site, and that it did indeed qualify. Now I'm just debating whether I want to go the extra step and send conforming user agents XHTML 1.1 and others HTML 4.01 Strict. I've even received some additional prodding regarding doing so. Hmm...

The sensible answer is to keep it as XHTML since there is no appearance of "must not" regarding the MIME and serving XHTML 1.0 in its backwards-compatible form for HTML based User-Agents.

W3C Authoring Techniques for XHTML & HTML Internationalization 1.0:

"Indeed we encourage the use of XHTML, and all the examples (unless trying to make a specific point about HTML 4.01) are written in XHTML."
