2006-04-05 📌 Site Update: Back to HTML 4.01

Tags All Updates

Expanded the index and FAQ I'd written for APASS in the process of helping my sister think of things for this summer. The phrase sheet will also be updated at some point, as she's studying Polish as part of her degree now.

The site has switched back to HTML 4.01, which is basically due to XHTML offering no significant advantages, a few possible drawbacks and the probable future of HTML. It's no less possible to write disciplined semantic markup with HTML 4.01, it's an equally valid milestone to code around, and the XHTML site served its purpose in forcing me to tidy up the tag soup code here before.

It's a real shame the Strict DOCTYPEs for HTML and XHTML don't permit inlined frames.
