Short for Extensible Hypertext Markup Language, a hybrid between HTML and XMLspecifically designed for Net device displays.
XHTML is a markup language written in XML; therefore, it is an XML application.
XHTML uses three XML namespaces (used to qualify element and attributes names by associating them with namespaces identified by URI references. Namespaces prevent identically custom-named tags that may be used in different XML documents from being read the same way), which correspond to three HTML 4.0 DTDs: Strict, Transitional, and Frameset.
XHTML markup must conform to the markup standards defined in a HTML DTD.
When applied to Net devices, XHTML must go through a modularization process. This enables XHTML pages to be read by many different platforms.
A device designer, using standard building blocks, will specify which elements are supported. Content creators will then target these building blocks–or modules.
Because these modules conform to certain standards, XHTML’s extensibility ensures that layout and presentation stay true-to-form over any platform.
XLR refers to a three-pin locking connector that is used in audio applications. In analog applications, particularly in some high-end consumer audio equipment, XLR connectors are used with balanced lines for optimal interference rejection. An XLR connector’s pins usually point in the direction of signal flow.
- XHTML MP
Short for XHTML Mobile Profile XHTML MP is a WAP 2.0 markup language as defined by the WAP Forum. XHTML MP is based on the XHTML Basic specification with some inclusions from the full version of XHTML. XHTML Mobile Profile supports the WCSS (WAP Cascading Style Sheet).
Short for XML Linking Language, a computer language that allows both unidirectional and bidirectional links to other resources (e.g., files, images, documents, programs, query results) to be embedded in XML documents, similar to the hyperlinks found in HTML Web pages. XLink gives XML documents the ability to: assert linking relationships among two or more resources […]
- Windows ReadyBoost
A Microsoft Windows Vista feature for adding memory to a system using flash memory, such as a USB flash drive, to improve performance without having to add additional system memory. The flash memory device will work as an additional memory cache that the computer can access much more quickly than it can access data on […]
Short for Extensible Markup Language, a specification developed by the W3C. XML is a pared-down version of SGML, designed especially for Web documents. It allows designers to create their own customized tags, enabling the definition, transmission, validation, and interpretation of data between applications and between organizations.
