no, I don't mean rewrite everything.  I mean there's nothing wrong 
with starting now and moving forward.

Why do you doubt it?  There will be no further versions of HTML.  So 
therefore HTML is dead & IF (yes, big if) the browsers support XML, 
HTML will just fall into disuse & die.

>did support for HTML 2.0 or 3.2 fall away?

not yet.  maybe later.


I have been working on a site, and I think the XHTML spec has changed 
once or twice since I started.  Will I now re-code it?  I will not. 
Will I try to move ahead on the next project?  probably.  but that's 
just me.

FWIW, this is my personal stuff.  If I actually get to code HTML 4 
(aka kill font tags) in my work-for-hire, that will be just dandy 
with me.

Do what you want.  Each site is different.  But there is no big 
reason NOT to build a site with XHTML.
