“Hoping to jump-start widespread adoption of the Extensible
Markup Language (XML), the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) this
week released for review XHTML 1.0.
“XHTML 1.0 is a reformulation of HTML 4.0 as an XML 1.0
application, according to W3C officials. The hybrid language allows
users to migrate from HTML to XML, as users can create
documents using HTML but also mix in XML functions.
“For example, complex documents can be created in HTML, but can
incorporate elements such as mathematical equations and music
measures from XML.”
