Web standards

I’ve just been having a long old tinker with plfc.org.uk, and I read on (slashdot iirc) about the upcoming HTML and XHTML releases, and the different directions they’re aiming.

For once I feel that the Internet might be becoming slightly structured!  I’m in preference of XHTML, it’s well structured, it’s unambiguous (assuming people actually validate it, but then there’s absolutely no point in using a language if you’ve not used the correct syntax, nobody releases source code with 20 compile errors in it on the basis that “well, some compiler out there will be able to guess what I meant”), and it’s extensible.

That was it really.  I just thought I’d proclaim my adoration of XML 🙂
