    This post is for people like me who always have to seek help even just to put together a one-page mini-site.

    What do you think should be taken care while web designing?

    This could be a thing you use always and it could be a thing to avoid.

    Make the pictures and words work together to show what the site offers at a glance.
    Good onpage seo.
    Check website in lots of browsers - I usually check ie 6 7 8, firefox, opera, safari and chrome.

    Is there any practical advantage to making valid XHTML? Or is it just that it forces you to keep clean, well formed code?

    It makes it clean, well formed.
    It has a better chance of rendering the same on all browsers.
    It will be really important for iPad applications and sites.

    Remember that iPad and various new technologies are touch-screen.
    Where the links and buttons appear are really important. The rendering
    has to be exact.

    EDIT:
    The iPad screen is 1024 X 768 pixels. It automatically switches from
    landscape to portrait when you rotate it, so if you put buttons on the
    far-right, and your page is 960 pixels, those bottoms will be off screen.
    Be careful about how you make your pages, where things appear,
    horizontally and vertically.

    I know you're thinking that the iPad is not really important now, but
    the touch-screen, keyboard-less browser is going to take over all of
    the laptop and desktop PC's. Apple isn't the only one that is going to
    create those interfaces.

    In fact, web sites themselves are no longer going to be important.
    I don't think I would really go into the web design business anymore.
    The future of Web3.0 is all about programming. Information presented
    from applications, not web sites. Static pages are toast. Even PHP and
    MySQL may not be powerful enough. New languages and Hybrid
    languages (like AJAX became) will start popping-up. There will be a
    major push forward with API's .... API's for everything! Information at the
    fingertips without the web site. My iPad, PDA, or Information Interface
    will know who I am, where I'm at, and what I need ... like a personal assistant.

    If you're really serious about the next couple of years in the world of web design,
    become a part of the new programming languages that have not yet been
    invented.

    I see.

    So is it worth trying to convert existing sites to XHTML? Rewrite them from scratch?

    Or just pick it up moving forward?

    Valid XHTML and CSS. No <table>'s for layout. Quality content (improves SEO as well), design should suit the purpose of the site and give customers a good first impression.
