Making pages XHTML-compliant

Making pages XHTML-compliant

When you create a new page, you can make it XHTML-compliant. You can also make an existing HTML document XHTML-compliant.

To create a new, XHTML-compliant document:

  1. Select File > New.

    The New Document dialog box appears.

  2. Select a category and type of page to create.
  3. Select one of the XHTML document type definitions (DTD) from the Document Type (DTD) pop-up menu.

    For example, you can make an HTML document XHTML-compliant by selecting XHTML 1.0 Transitional or XHTML 1.0 Strict from the pop-up menu.

  4. Click OK.

To create XHTML-compliant documents by default:

  1. Select Edit > Preferences or Dreamweaver > Preferences (Mac OS X) and select the New Document category.
  2. In the New Document category, select a default document and select one of the XHTML document type definitions (DTD) from the Default Document Type (DTD) pop-up menu.

    For example, you can make an HTML document XHTML-compliant by selecting XHTML 1.0 Transitional or XHTML 1.0 Strict from the pop-up menu.

  3. Click OK.

To make an existing HTML document XHTML-compliant:

  • Open a document, then do one of the following:
    • For a document without frames, select File > Convert, and then select one of the XHTML document type definitions.

      For example, you can make an HTML document XHTML-compliant by selecting XHTML 1.0 Transitional or XHTML 1.0 Strict from the pop-up menu.

    • For a document with frames, select a frame and select File > Convert, and then select one of the XHTML document type definitions.

      To convert the whole document, repeat this step for every frame and the frameset document.
