I heard a lot about Strict HTML so just wanted to know what it is exactly ? i know basics of HTML but not deeply or thoroughly can anybody explain exact use of it. I mean with some examples or with a link it will be great ..
"This is HTML 4.01 Strict DTD, which excludes the presentation
attributes and elements that W3C expects to phase out as
support for style sheets matures. Authors should use the Strict
DTD when possible, but may use the Transitional DTD when support
for presentation attribute and elements is required.
HTML 4 includes mechanisms for style sheets, scripting,
embedding objects, improved support for right to left and mixed
direction text, and enhancements to forms for improved
accessibility for people with disabilities."
unfortunately i think we've already used about the most simple terms i can offer - strict vs. loose is the way that html is processed by your browser's dom (document object model) - strict allows you to get away with less sloppy code...technically html has a very strict set of formatting rules but often browsers are very loose with their interpretation of your html commands...strict tried to tighten that up a bit...
without seeing your page i can't say as to why things didn't change - it's not necessarily a guarantee that your page will change - it's not a different language but rather a different interpretation in some cases - in many others, it's the same. if you don't have a ton of style sheets or complex table layouts then you might not see a change.
if you'd like examples, i'd start on google - there are a ton of 'em to be found there:
