Thursday October 2nd, 2003

MozPhile writes: "In an effort to publicize a new CSS design for mozilla.org, a new mozdev project has been created. Based on the current design, this new one features valid XHTML 1.1 and CSS 2, with semantic HTML. First a fully standards-compliant browser, now a fully standards-compliant website to top it off!" Note that mozilla.org has not made any official statement regarding the design or whether they plan to use it.

"This phrase, or the phrase "NOT RECOMMENDED" mean that there may exist valid reasons in particular circumstances when the particular behavior is acceptable or even useful"

What is the valid reason or particular circumstance in this case then?

Or to put it another way, what are you getting from serving XHTML 1.1 to IE6 as text/html that you can not get from serving XHTML 1.0 as text/html (a practice which is permitted as a "MAY") instead?

There's no extenuating reason that requires XHTML 1.1 for this page. It's not valid to serve it as text/html.
