    How are you supposed to open a new browser window in XHTML Strict without reverting to Javascript?

    It is for reasons like this that vBulletin 3 will be XHTML Transitional compliant, but not XHTML Strict compliant.
    Why did the deprecate that. That's st00pid. o_O

        yeah, the justification of that "limitation" seems decent enough... wonder what else they think users "should" and "should not" do

          I wasn't really asking, it's more of a rhetorical question (notice there's no question mark, but a period). I did read it. I still think it's a bad idea not including it in the standard.

            You will find that XHTML is actually getting back to the true spirit of HTML and they are removing a lot of garbage introduced by Microsoft and Netscape in their bids for world domination.

            At the same time they are removing presentation stuff from HTML, they are making CSS stronger. By the time XHTML 1.1 is widespread and this is truly an issue, CSS3 will also be available and it allows for a large range of things including behaviors as supported by Internet Explorer today so all you would have to do is assign a class of "external" to your link which then calls the script to launch a new window and load the link.

            People seem to be getting all worked up about a lot of nothing. Full usage of XHTML is going to be relegated to small portions of the web until at least 2005.
