    What are the benefits from upgrading my code from HTML to XHTML? My site is currently HTML transitional but I'm considering trying to move it up to XHTML since it is the next generation of web design. How hard will it be to make the switch, will I be able to maintain most of my HTML and CSS? Will I have to scrap everything and start over again?

    It is easy in most cases. Obviously it depends on how your site has currently been coded. You will be able to keep most of it, and at worst just find replacements for depreciated tags.
    XHTML and HTML are pretty similar.

    I think you should read through this article - http://www.w3schools.com/xhtml/xhtml_intro.asp
    it will give you a better insight of XHTML and how it works and how to use it.
