Reference Scope

This chapter is unique in the book because it is written to serve as a reference for all the elements included in the XHTML 1.0 recommendation, as published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). It is a one-stop catalog of each element, including the element's attributes, syntax, and examples of uses. By necessity, this chapter covers a large amount of information, but you'll soon come to appreciate the value of having all the relevant facts about all XHTML elements—together with tips on how to use them—right at your fingertips.


This chapter covers only the elements included in the recommended XHTML 1.0 Document Type Definition (DTD), as published by the World Wide Web Consortium in January 2000. Browser-specific extensions to HTML 4.0 are beyond the scope of this chapter but might be covered elsewhere in the book. The extended HTML tag <LAYER> introduced by Netscape Communications Corporation, for example, is discussed in detail in Chapter 24, "Introduction to Dynamic HTML," and Chapter 26, "Advanced Netscape Dynamic HTML."

For the most up-to-date status of XHTML, consult http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/, where you will find links to the most current version of the standard and any version prior to that.
