Moving to XHTML 1.1
Wednesday, 24 November 2004
I’ve just finished the move to XHTML 1.1. For the most part it was pretty easy, because when I build this website I build it to validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional. The difference between 1.1 and 1.0 Transitional are not that big, except for some deprecated tags, such as
<u> and some deprecated attributes such as
target. All in all pretty straightforward.
Of course I noticed that a lot of pages didn’t even validate XHTML 1.0 in the first place, so I had to clean up some earlier weblog entries. D’oh!
One thing keeps bugging me though. The
wrap attribute of the
<textarea> element has also been deprecated, but there is no immediate replacement. I want to turn off wrapping for my lib-scrub demo page, but I haven’t found a way that validates. Any ideas?
