Most webpage coders are familiar with HTML (HyperText Markup Language), but when they see the term XHTML many of they say "what the heck is XHTML". Well, you may have noticed that HTML and XHTML (Extensible HyperText Markup Language) look very similar. They both use tags that are delimited with < and > characters. But HTML was designed long before XHTML and therefore is less rigorous. In other words, HTML does not require the coder to follow strict rules, while if you don't strictly follow the rules while coding XHTML, it just plain won't work. XHTML is an attempt to make HTML as rigorous as XML. In fact an XHTML webpage IS an XML document.
