XHTML Essentials (0471217387) cover image


With Web access becoming available through TV, handheld devices, and even phones, developers need to create sites that can be viewed from different environments, not just from the desktop. Introducing XHTML, the next generation HTML, this practical guide jumpstarts Web developers on the technology that ensures that their Web pages stay true-to-form on any available platform. Using extensive code and real-world examples, XML expert Michael Sauers teaches readers how to apply XHTML quickly and effectively without having to become XML programmers first. Readers will learn how to migrate legacy HTML documents to XHTML and create documents and applications for a variety of platforms. Like the other books in the series, an appendix listing will feature where to find updated information, a source code index, and other handy features.
