Another change

Here's another change I made. This time the file is serendipity_plugin_history.php. Lines 192 through 194 have been changed to add calls to htmlspecialchars as follows: htmlspecialchars($e[$x]['title']) : htmlspecialchars(trim(serendipity_mb('substr', $e[$x]['title'], 0, $maxlength-3)).' [...]'); ec...

Geotag plugin change

I also changed line 63 of serendipity_event_geotag.php as follows:

$propbag->add('default', 'http://local.google.com/maps?q=%GEO_LAT%,%GEO_LONG%+(%TITLE%)&spn=0.1,0.1&t=h');

This is a case where '&' needed to become '&'

Even the W3C has made a step back, they are now moving towards HTML5 / XHTML5, which breaks with the XML-conformace on well-formedness. And guess why: They saw it didn't work out. You raise some valid points, and XHTML may not have widespread adoption in the short term as a result of what you have ...

Validity may not be so important

Regarding my <blockquote> reply above, it may not actually be very important to focus on VALID markup as much as WELL-FORMED markup. Browsers do not validate markup at all, but they do check for well-formed markup ONLY when using the application/xhtml+xml MIME type. I want my XHTML to be well-formed...

<blockquote> in XHTML 1.1

Another thing we noticed when we validated our site against the XHTML 1.1 DTD is that this kind of markup is illegal: <blockquote>Text goes here</blockquote> XHTML 1.1 requires a block-level element like <p> or <div> after the <blockquote>: <blockquote><div>Text goes here</div></blockquote> Would it...

Weather plug-in has malformed XHTML

One of the plug-in fixes I made was to correct some malformed XHTML. Around line 423 of serendipity_plugin_weather.php, I corrected the code to read as follows: $content .= '<img src="' . $conditionIcon . '" alt="" /><br />'. $conditions . '<br />'; // FIXXME: Translate the Windd...

The "Fix common XHTML errors" plug-in is extremely useful in allowing my non-tech-savvy authors to post links with ampersands in them without getting any errors. I've been impressed with this plug-in as it converts "&" to "&amp;" in seemingly every case where it...

An XHTML 1.1 blog with Serendipity 1.1 features

We just finished converting our blog, SLV Dweller , from MoveableType 3.33 to Serendipity 1.1. It's a blog about the San Luis Valley of Colorado. Plus, we went ahead and used XHTML 1.1 (with a little bit of embedded SVG) for the markup language. It was an arduous process to convert over 6,000 entrie...
