Re: [webdesign-396] Question

What a wonderful world it would be to have XML, XSD, and XSLT driving webpages.  Maybe SharePoint was on to something. 

XHTML was supposed to replace HTML, but the branch has been relatively quiet.  What we love about XHTML is the rigidity that HTML didn't enforce - basically the well formed XML tags.  The two could merge back together at some point.

The second Meetup that I attended went over CSS micro-optimization.  This and other features of the current technology are not well adapted and are under utilized today (and we want to add more?)

The web development gods are fickle and vain. Several years ago most developers predicted a Flash world.  Accessibility, searching (web crawling), and emergence of 'smart' phone brought people back to reality.  Then it was broke it again with AJAX.

On a side note, do we need to lower our user experience expectations or enhance our accessibility and web crawling tools?

-Dan

version?
