I can specify my structure and data until the cows come home, but without some idea of how to tie this all together into valid usable XHTML it is not a lot of use. I’ll have to try a bit more digging around tomorrow I guess, but so far the step from small snippets of pseudo code in the examples given to my own actual page is proving elusive. The concept I like, it makes sense, it sounds
as though it will make my life orders of magnitude easier if only I could fathom how to link the whole lot together. The XHTML examples I have found just look like fairly standard HTML to me, except with the emphasis that it needs to be accurate, case correct and with close tags in the right places – well that’s just good HTML coding surely; is that all XHTML is – good HTML coding tied together with a bit of CSS? Am I trying to read more into it than is really there?
Ah well, off to bed. The past few weeks have been more than a little hectic with both of the nippers having chicken pox one after the other and then ‘big nipper’ being sick for the last day of school (what a wonderful night that was leaping up with a bucket every ten minutes from around 3am onwards!). Perhaps I’m just too tired to take it all in properly. Then again it could just be my age, after all I’ve just become an uncle for the second time, so I must be getting on a bit now!!
