Charles Miller has written a useful piece on the state of HTML, XHTML1, and XHTML2 with pointers to more info and interesting opinions on the topic. I feel like I've been almost totally out of touch with this stuff. I need to do some reading and not just the frenetic blog scanning that normally counts as reading for me.One of the main reasons that I started working on Roller was to learn how to develop a webapp on both the server and client side. As an app server developer, I know the app server side of things like the Servlet API and J2EE, but on the client-side sometimes I feel pretty lost. I need to take a break from the Roller server-side and learn how to give the Blogging Roller site a serious markover.
