    I was just browsing the "how's my site" part of the forum and came accross some negative comments about designing with XHTML & CSS, here is the thread:http://www.webdesignforums.net/thread8137.html

    I was especially intersted in the issue raised about backward compatibility as (how green am I??) it was something I hadn't really thought about. I really want to design my site with XHTML and CSS because I find it a really comfortable way to design, especially the CSS part which I think has loads of potential for good design.

    However, what I have noticed in learning how to do the layout is that all the browsers tend to display layout aspects of CSS a little differently. E.g. min-width and max-width (in CSS) only seem to be supported by Opera, which is a pain quite frankly!!

    I still think I will go with XHTML (transitional) and CSS but as accessibility is quite high on my list of "must-dos" I really want my site to have the ability to look the same in most browsers. Not so worried about the XHTML (it will be transitional anyway which I gather is backward compatible?) more the CSS which, as I said, I notice is different in each current browser never mind older ones.

    Just wondered what the general feeling is in here. :-)

    Pretty interesting (but one-sided) article on the case for using XHTML et al here:

    To Hell With Old Browsers

    It is from Feb 2001 though, it would be interesting to see something a little more up to date. Very interesting article tho. :classic:
