    Question HTML 3.2 WYSIWYG Editor

    Is there an editor available that will only generate 3.2 HTML code but works with Win XP?

    Thanks

    Why do you want HTML 3.2 code? What wrong with HTML 4.01?

    Why don't you just learn to code by hand? It just takes practice.

    Design/program for Firefox (and/or Opera), apply fixes for IE, not the other way around.

    HTML 3.2 was deprecated but yes there are IDE that will read an appropriate DTD: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html32-19970114#dtd

    Hold on there people.

    1) HTML 3.2 has not been depricated, though some of it's features have.

    2) Most WYSIWYG editors do generate HTML 3.2 but with some other DOCTYPE. For the most part HTML 4.01 strict is a subset of 3.2. Just find one that doesn't stick DIV elements in there.

    The W3C site lists HTML 3.2 under HTML 4.0 in the previous versions section. This indicates that it is no longer considered to be a current version of HTML for development (ie. it is deprecated).

    Current HTML versions listed are:XHTML 1.0, XHTML Basic, XHTML 1.1, and HTML 4.01

    We use specialized software to convert large documents to html. The easiest way to correct the documents is in a WYSIWYG editor. The documents are then uploaded to a system that only accepts 3.2 HTML.

    Current HTML versions listed are:XHTML 1.0, XHTML Basic, XHTML 1.1, and HTML 4.01
    And previous version are:
    HTML 4.0
    First released as a W3C Recommendation on 18 December 1997. A second release was issued on 24 April 1998 with changes limited to editorial corrections. This specification has now been superseded by HTML 4.01.
    HTML 3.2
    W3C's first Recommendation for HTML which represented the consensus on HTML features for 1996. HTML 3.2 added widely-deployed features such as tables, applets, text-flow around images, superscripts and subscripts, while providing backwards compatibility with the existing HTML 2.0 Standard.
    HTML 2.0
    HTML 2.0 (RFC 1866) was developed by the IETF's HTML Working Group, which closed in 1996. It set the standard for core HTML features based upon current practice in 1994. Note that with the release of RFC 2854, RFC 1866 has been obsoleted and its current status is HISTORIC.
    Note that none are, strictly speaking, depricated. However, HTML 4.0 has been "superseded" and HTML 2.0 is "obsolete" and "historic". But there is no indication that we ought not to be using 3.2 - not from the W3C that is. I'll stand firmly for the primacy of HTML 4.01 Strict and anybody who says anything otherwise is itching for a fight.
