View Full Version : xhtml question

Is it better to use this format:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

or this:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

I've seen a couple sites with each and wondered if there is a difference with one opposed to the other?

I would go with the first one. It is specifying the language. :)

Here is somemore info: http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-http-and-lang

Hope it helps :)

I agree with Johnny. Saves you from having to add language META.

I just read this A List Apart (http://www.alistapart.com/stories/doctype/) article about doctypes today.
