Tell me, what html do you use and why

I use xhtml because of its strictness and i find it just the most harmonious way to make a webpage.

It also made me code in more accessible and seo optimized way

xHTML, when creating new code. That said, I don't always validate it as well as I'd like. For modifying existing code, I usually stick with what's there, as I'm not into doing massive rewrites if it's sloppy HTML.

I only use XHTML when creating a new web-pages because it is more standardized. In the future, standardization of web pages will be of great value and simple web page will not work properly.

Heya folks,

I use a combination of HTML and xHTML. I use the strictness of xHTML with the flexibility of HTML by just coding naturally and making small webpages by using common coding standards. Unfortunately I can't vote on the poll becuse you don't have a "BOTH" option.

Websites are already standards, and they already use HTML/xHTML. This will NEVER change. I always have my x/HTML formatted correctly and neat. Unless it's a block that I don't want modified or understandable. .. . but that's just so that people can see and easily read/understand the code. Comments would not be visible in the x/HTML because the comments are in the PHP at the backend.
