Modifying Dreamweaver to Produce Valid XHTML by Carrie Bickner

Yesterday I used the recommendations in this articleto re-configure Dreamweaver.
I was chasing a different problem when I found this article. It is a great article
for Dreamweaver users who desire an easier way to create valid xhtml 1.0 compliant
web pages. I believe specific browser issues can be minimized by making all
pages at least html 4.01 compliant but that is easier said than done. I set
off on this escapade when I tried to fix the templates for this site to be 4.01
compliant. The problems were primarily self-inflicted. Some of the postings
I had cut and pasted from different applications were giving me problems. I
am not sure why I ended up at the alistapart site except that I was trying to
figure out the differences between “strong”and “bold”, “EM”
and “italic”, and the correct use of special characters.
