- Jan 8, 2009Basically, all modern, major browsers handle true xhtml, that is xhtml
served as xhtml rather than html, except IE which will ask you to save
the page as a file.
Obviously, sites configured for access by the general public are set
up to serve pages as html so IE won't choke. Xhtml 1.0 is fine for
this purpose, but xhtml 1.1 should only be used if it is in fact going
to be served as xhtml.
