A HTML document can be converted to XHTML document.


A HTML document can be converted to XHTML document.

one step is:'Un-minimize' minimized attributes

What does the step mean in easy english?...@@.
I mean what operations I should do on the attributes?

Any suggestion is welcome.

Correct. Though often it isn't worth it.

See http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#h-4.5

If you have a boolean attribute such as readonly you must specify it
as readonly="reado nly"

If you have an attribute that takes keywords as values then in HTML
you can use the keywords alone (e.g. <td valign="top" align="center">
can be written as <td top center>) in HTML - browser support is
another matter - but must be written in full in XHTML.

If you are trying to write a parser to convert from HTML to XHTML then
you will need to change both types accordingly. Hence the parser will
need knowledge of the different attributes, either by parsing a DTD or
by having them hard coded.

Hi, I am trying to track down a bug in a program I've written which parses an XHTML document. The document has been cleaned up with Tidy and converted to XHTML and has a strict.dtd reference. When the xerces parser hits a line in the dtd, I get the following output: **Parsing Fatal Error** Line: 81 URI: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/strict.dtd Message: The declaration for the entity "ContentType" must end with '>'.

I must confess I only come here when I have a problem - so my apologies if this has been raised before: Using my IE v.6 browser, document.write doesn't convert HTML entities (e.g. &apos;, &amp;) to the appropriate character (though NS 6.2 works fine). Obviously I can get round this for particular entities by writing some code to do the conversion before using document.write - but I need a more general solution that will catch any of the...

Help, As part of my family history web site i need to get 150 pages of typed text into some format to display. It just text right now but I would like to add some graphics (photos) and make the text more friendly to read. I am thinking to divide it into smaller chapters and to format it something like a newspaper article. But just learning about HTML, 150 pages just seems like too greater task. Is there a shortcut or another way to do...

Ok I'm making a fairly simple application. It contains 2 web browsers, the top one is used so that you can view a website (i.e. one you have created). Every time you load a page, the HTML which was received is then sent to the http://validator.w3.org website to validate your HTML / XHTML. So far I've got everything to work, even the part where the HTML is posted to the w3.org website.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
