HTML File Format
HTML or Hypertext Markup Language is used to mostly create and format simple web pages. Its main purpose is to align text, images, or links on a website in a specific way. Web pages with .html or .htm extensions are examples of static web site files. Any server or database technologies require another language on top of html to create dynamic features in a web site. HTML files are plain text files with no encryption.
HTML files can be view using any web browser:
- Windows Internet Explorer - Netscape Navigator - Mozzila Firefox - Opera - Konquerer
XHTML File Format
Extensive Hypertext Markup Language or HTML 5 is the most advanced type of the HTML family. It provided dynamic features as well as the old formating features. The main difference with XHTML or as it used to be called XML is the idea of being able to add and update atributes dynamically. Any number of elements can be added by the user to further define the formating structure of a web page.
