Topic: Difference between XHTML,HTML,DHTML

HTML is a Hyper Text Markup Language which is used to display the internet website contents on the internet browsers. This is the common language to develop the web site pages.

DHTML is Dynamic HTML(DHTML) which will be used to display the dynamic web site pages. It is not a standard defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), it is a "marketing term" that was used by Netscape and Microsoft
to describe the new technologies the 4.x generation browsers would support. Dynamic HTML is a combination of technologies to make Web pages dynamic. To most people, Dynamic HTML means a combination of HTML 4.0, Style Sheets and JavaScript.

XHTML is similar to the HTML but follows the rules of XML. XHTML is used to be compatible with XML programming. Following the rules now would make it possible to include XML programming in the future. It is not difficult to change HTML pages to XHTML, but it can be time-consuming. Finding all line breaks and images to include closing tags, converting any uppercase to lowercase and any other incompatibility can be a nuisance. Using a find and replace program can allow you to edit your code faster, but you still have to reupload all those changes. It is recommended that programmers try to remember these rules to comply with W3C recommendations, so the web pages appear correctly in most browsers. The main differences between HTML and XHTML is the case-sensitivity, the need to use closing tags for all tags, the need to use quotes around all attribute values and that all attributes must be in lowercase as XML requires.

Re: Difference between XHTML,HTML,DHTML

Thanks for given such fantastic and very important information. It is a very helpful for me . In all three language there are few different and slightly change. But actually lots of different between all among them. But recent days use of this language are become a less because CSS language is very popular and also CMS tools are available for web design. CMS tools are very easy to use and learn. Also you can implement your design with this tools. But any ways again thanks for sharing such a nice information.

Re: Difference between XHTML,HTML,DHTML

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language. It is used to create static pages using simple markup tags such as<Head>, <Body>, <h1>, etc.

DHTML stands for Dynamic Hypertext Markup Language. It is used to create dynamic webpages. It uses different languages such as HTML, Jva, stylesheets.

XHTML stands for Extensible Hypertext Markup Language. It is the extended form of HTML.  Its documents are XML based.

I don't think this forum is a suitable place to ask the questions like that. use Google search, wiki, W3schools , etc.

Re: Difference between XHTML,HTML,DHTML

HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is the most widely accepted language used to build websites. It is the main structure of a website. It builds tables, creates divisions, gives a heading message (In the title bar of programs), and actually outputs text.

XHTML (eXtensive Hyper Text Markup Language) is the same as HTML, except it has a cleaner syntax. XHTML uses the same tags as HTML, so people who know HTML know messy XHTML. New rules apply in XHTML, such as tags always needing to be ended; Tags need to be

dHTML is not a language, but the art of using HTML, JavaScript, and CSS together to create dynamic things.

Re: Difference between XHTML,HTML,DHTML

HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is the main markup language for creating web pages and other information that can be displayed in a web browser.
HTML is written in the form of HTML elements consisting of tags enclosed in angle brackets (like <html>), within the web page content. HTML tags most commonly come in pairs like <h1> and </h1>, although some tags, known as empty elements, are unpaired, for example <img>. The first tag in a pair is the start tag, the second tag is the end tag (they are also called opening tags and closing tags). In between these tags web designers can add text, tags, comments and other types of text-based content.
..................................
XHTML stands for EXtensible HyperText Markup Language. XHTML is almost identical to HTML 4.01.XHTML is a stricter and cleaner version of HTML 4.01.XHTML is HTML defined as an XML application. XHTML is supported by all major browsers. xhmtl are two primary parts:
HTML 4 is a markup language used for displaying text and documents across different platforms and machines. It was originally intended for a very specific audience, and has expanded to include hypertext, multimedia, as well as the style of the documents displayed.XML is an extensible markup language that was developed to retain the flexibility and power of HTML while reducing most of the complexity.
......................................
Dynamic HTML is not really a new specification of HTML, but rather a new way of looking at and controlling the standard HTML codes and commands.
There are four parts to DHTML:
    Document Object Model (DOM) (definition)
    Scripts
    Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
    XHTML
DOM:>
The DOM is what allows you to access any part of your Web page to change it with DHTML. Every part of a Web page is specified by the DOM and using its consistent naming conventions you can access them and change their properties.
Scripts:>
Scripts written in either JavaScript or ActiveX are the two most common scripting languages used to activate DHTML. You use a scripting language to control the objects specified in the DOM.
Cascading Style Sheets:>
CSS is used in DHTML to control the look and feel of the Web page. Style sheets define the colors and fonts of text, the background colors and images, and the placement of objects on the page. Using scripting and the DOM, you can change the style of various elements.
XHTML:>
XHTML or HTML 4.x is used to create the page itself and build the elements for the CSS and the DOM to work on. There is nothing special about XHTML for DHTML - but having valid XHTML is even more important, as there are more things working from it than just the browser.

Features of DHTML
There are four primary features of DHTML:
   Changing the tags and properties
    Real-time positioning
    Dynamic fonts (Netscape Communicator)
    Data binding (Internet Explorer)

Good difference, thank you for sharing this...

Re: Difference between XHTML,HTML,DHTML

hi..
    I am trying to differentiate HTML, XHTML and DHTML   
HTML is a markup language that is used to build static webpages.

XHTML is an xml markup language that mirrors HTML syntaxes.

DHTML stands for Dynamic HTML and is a combination of static code like HTML, and dynamic scripting languages like JavaScript, used to create interactive and animated websites.
