|Modularization of XHTML|
|Pulling XHTML Apart to Put It Together in New Places|
On 10 April 2001, the W3C released the modularization of XHTML as a recommendation. This will allow XHTML to reach a wider audience and more platforms. Soon, you may see XHTML on things like your cell phone or television.
What is XHTML
What is Modularization?
The W3C has split up XHTML into a number of abstract modules. The following core modules are required to be present in any XHTML family conforming Document Type:
Using those four modules, you can create basic XHTML documents. One thing to note: images are not a part of the core XHTML modules. Some might argue that adding images to a document is integral to XHTML, but images are not as readily portable to other systems, such as cell phones and PDAs. There is an image module, so it is simple to add them into your XHTML documents, it is just not a part of the core modules.
There are other modules for adding additional functionality, such as tables, applets, forms, images, frames, and much more. And, as mentioned above, XHTML developers can also create additional modules for extending the functionality of XHTML.
