The current HTML generated by the Wikipedia server is
HTML 4.01 Transitional. This should be moved to XHTML
1.0 Strict. This would enable several spin-off benefits:
* gives better rigour, i.e. certainty of page
correctness leading to fewer browser misunderstandings
(hence layout differences between different browsers)
* gives complete dependency on CSS for styling, which
simplifies the HTML
* gives scope for mixed namespaces - notably embedded
SVG and MathML
The third of these is not supported by any browsers
(except probably Amaya) yet, but should be planned for.
