The XHTML family can accommodate extensions through
XHTML modules and techniques to develop new XHTML-conforming
modules. These modules permit the combination of
existing and new feature sets when developing
content and when designing new user agents.

the XHTML family is designed keeping in mind the
general user agent interoperability. Through
document profiling mechanism, servers, proxies, and
user agents are able to create best effort content

conforming. The content can be readily viewed,
edited, and validated with standard XML tools. XHTML

applets) that rely upon either the HTML Document
Object Model or the XML Document Object Model.

identification it is constantly logged into the MSN

software’s features include: automated file
