What does XHTML mean?

XHTML
XHTML is a family of XML markup languages that mirror or extend versions of the widely used Hypertext Markup Language, the language in which web pages are written. While HTML was defined as an application of Standard Generalized Markup Language, a very flexible markup language framework, XHTML is an application of XML, a more restrictive subset of SGML. Because XHTML documents need to be well-formed, they can be parsed using standard XML parsers—unlike HTML, which requires a lenient HTML-specific parser. XHTML 1.0 became a World Wide Web Consortium Recommendation on January 26, 2000. XHTML 1.1 became a W3C Recommendation on May 31, 2001. XHTML5 is undergoing development as of September 2009, as part of the HTML5 specification.
