  Web standards! HTML5, XHTML 2.0, XHTML5 
 Date Written

Anybody have any input on any of this that's been going on lately? And idea when HTML5 will finally be shoved out by the W3C as "recommended?"

My site currently uses XHTML 1.1. I was a little sad to hear that XHTML 2.0 (as it was) is getting scrapped, but it seems most of the parts are going to fuse together with the whenever-its-done HTML5 into 'XHTML5,' the XML serialization of HTML5. I'd be keen to use that.

I'm doing a full redesign of my personal site, it currently serves up XHTML 1.1 as application/xhtml+xml to anything that can support it, and XHTML 1.1 in tag-soup mode as text/html to anything that can't (*cough* IE *cough*).

I'm working it now so that it will actually respect q-values of the Content-Type client header, serve up fullon XHTML 1.1 when it can or is allowed to, and serve mostly the same content up as XHTML 1.0 Strict as text/html (W3C says I 'MAY') for the unwashed masses. Just changed the '/>'s to ' />'s (+space), changed the prolog and moved the stylesheet from the xml PI to a <type> element (some clients go bonkers with an xml-stylesheet PI).

Anyway, a lot of rambling ... and opinions on the current state of web standards? Doesn't have to be all HTML talk. ^_^

I can't wait till the new standard comes out and revolutionizes all the interwebs.
