xHTML, HTML5 or back to HTML4.01

There’s an interesting discussion going on about the merits of one over the other, here’s Dave Shea’s view, and here’s Cameron Moll’s take on it…

I’ve been using xHTML for a long time, but these two articles make a very strong case for reverting back to HTML4.01. I’m not quite convinced yet, I like closing my tags dammit! There’s a neatness to it, that’s the obsessive compulsive side of me! But in reality, using WordPress and Drupal as much as I do I don’t see any benefit in moving back at this point, who has the time anyway. I’ll keep my clean code and will go straight to HTML5, when….that comes out.
