Re: [webdesign-396] Question

October, currently HTML 4.0 or XHTML 1.0 are the versions recommended for most uses. (XHTML 2.0 was moving in a diff. direction and was pretty much scrapped in favor of HTML 5.0)

Some people are also experimenting with HTML 5.0. You can too, so long as you allow it to degrade nicely to 4.0. Smashing has an article about this.
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/08/04/designing-a-html-5-layout-from-scratch/ . As I recall they also talked about this on a recent episode of http://www.boagworld.com.

Dan mentioned Silverlight, but also brought up the problems regarding search engine optimization (SEO) and accessibility. It seems to have issues similar to those found with Flash so I suspect one would need sufficient expertise to create the appropriate work-arounds for those problems.

While it seems in many ways that the Web is speeding along, the recommendations do get implemented slowly. As usual it's not just the browser developers that slow things down, but also the users. We're still dealing with a number of (mostly corporate) users on IE 6 (and some still on 5) so I think we'll need to keep using HTML 4.0 or XHTML 1.0 for quite some time. sigh.
