XHTMLizer, html to xhtml

git
All,

I have been working on a system to support the 'tidy' program to help
convert html to xhtml. The system is a little complex for me to put
together as it involves apache/php/linux and a windows daemon doing the
conversion, help and email systems.

I would be very grateful of anyone who would be prepared to give it a
quick try and see if it works for them.

BTW - this is a free service and it will stay free!

Thanks

AJ

Wrong way round, had it worked the other way you might have had
something vaguely resembling useful for the occasional person.

You can convert either way with a variety of tools, from commandline
(e.g. Tidy, xmllint, htnorm) to GUI (e.g. AccessValet) to built
into the webserver (e.g. mod_proxy_html) . Your choice.

Personally I would have rated something like AccessValet slightly higher
than "something vaguely resembling useful for the occasional person",
but since it's creator doesn't, who am I to argue.

Why do people want to convert xhtml to html?

Hang around and you'll see explanations about HTML being the language that
works on the Web.

Besides, much of what people call xhtml is just a mixture of correct HTML,
tag soup HTML, XHTML features, and various syntactic and semantic errors.
Cleaning it up to produce HTML makes much more sense than trying to turn it
into XHTML.

Support for HTML is rather better then for XHTML (Internet Explorer
still holds a not insignificant share of the market).

(And XHTML as text/html is an ugly hack)

Hopefully because they acquired a clue after slavishly and foolishly
following the fallacy that is XHTML1.x.
http://www.spartanicus.utvinternet.ie/no-xhtml.htm

XHTML2 on the other hand is widely considered to be still born, there is
no indication that anyone is considering implementing it, and it doesn't
offer the solutions to real world problems that authors want. It can be
argued that it isn't even possible to implement XHTML2 since as
currently planned XHTML2 shares a namespace with XHTML1. Combined this
results in the conclusion that XHTML has virtually nothing to offer in
terms of moving things forward.

In contrast the WhatWG is in the process of extending HTML with real
world features that authors do need and want. This draft proposal is
known as Web Applications 1.0 aka HTLM 5 [1]. In contrast with XHTML2,
features from HTML 5 have already been implemented by some major
browsers, and unlike XHTML 2 HTML 5 has gathered considerable interest
and support from the author community. Reluctantly W3C now seems to have
accepted that HTML could be the way forward [2].

Well, the conversion isn't the main function of any of the
things I mentioned. I just meant to say, there's no shortage
of tools for the job. They all serve other purposes.

Hi, I converted most (not all) of my pages at http://johnbokma.com/ to XHTML. I thought this was just a small change from 4.01. However someone stated quite vaguely that my pages are *not* XHTML since when a UA requests a page and states that it can handle XML the server still responds with a Content-type: text/html I see that http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/ does the same (Firebird)
