What's the differece between XHTML 1.0 Strict and XHTML 1.1? Well I decided to change the doctype of the new index page to XHTML 1.1 and it only complained about one bit. It used to have xml:lang="en" lang="en" but apparently the lang element has been removed in favour of xml:lang - so I was already there with the xml:lang support, to make my page XHTML 1.1 compliant I just had to remove a bit of code!
So what else is different? I expected it to be something big between XHTML 1.0 Strict and XHTML 1.1, but apparently not. That's one of just 3 changes listed so far in the W3C Recommendation
, along with replacing name with id for anchor tags and image maps (still no official word on target support, you have to add that in as a module, but allowing anyone to add anything as a module sounds like a bad idea to me), and something called Ruby (short runs of text alongside the base text, typically used in East Asian documents to indicate pronunciation or to provide a short annotation).
