If you think your website background explorations end with html languages, you are in for more surprises.
You can definitely be in more control of the images you want to use in your website by going up to xhtml or Extensible HyperText Markup Language. It works in the same way as html, but it can also be used with xml or Extensible Markup Language.
Xml enables the designer to create customized marks. It is classified as “extensible” because it stretches the image manipulation for the user as well as encode documents and serialize the data (converting an object into sequences or bits). With its xml compatibility, xhtml is generally more user-friendly than the standard html tool because xhtml is more flexible and can be used on a number of computers, programs and applications without having to be converted many times. Because of this attribute, xhtml is called cleaner version of the html.
Xhtml web backgrounds are great for dividing the page into columns, for using portrait photos and for displaying captions and images using Java script.
For those who do not wish to make CSS conversations for their html codes, they can still make use of xhtml using free xhtml web templates available over the Internet. Some of the great sites to get your xhtml templates include www.styleshout.com where you can get free xhtml and css website templates, colored texts and headers; www.dnncreative.com for free xhtml-compliant skins for your interfaces, www.opendesigns.org which is an open source web resources for anything xhtml; and www.htmlcsstutorials.com which offers both css-xhtml tutorials and tools.
