Thanks, Vlad. Sorry if I did not state this clearly, but I didn't mean general references on what XHTML is and how to use it. I meant more in terms of how to properly use Semantic XHTML with your content to provide meaningful context for each part of the page. For example, some people choose to make their main logos wrapped in an H1. Why? Is this semantically correct? Does the logo need to occupy the top level of the Document Outline and content hierarchy? I'm curious if there are any definitive guides on how to best structure the XHTML markup to best provide meaningful content to all user agents and search engines. I know, for example, that it is preferable to use elements with semantic meaning over generic containers. But why? Is there any solid data anywhere to support this best practice? What are the correct rules for headlines, taglines, date stamps, contact information, addresses, etc? When is it right to use microformats? Thanks for your help. -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Vlad Alexander Sent: Monday, November 19, 2007 12:04 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] Good resources for Semantic XHTML Hi Craig, Please see: http://xhtml.com/en/xhtml/reference/ Regards, -Vlad http://xstandard.com XStandard XHTML WYSIWYG Editor -------- Original Message -------- From: Craig Givens Date: 2007-11-19 11:50 AM > Does anyone have any definitive resource guides on how to properly use > XHTML for semantic markup purposes?
