Well, I tried a couple of other tools before I got here, and my thoughts were:
- Blogger – generates invalid XHTML, and the domain I wanted was taken;
- infogami – uses its own markup language, which I can’t be bothered learning;
- WordPress – generates valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
Now, if I have to use XHTML, I’d prefer Strict to Transitional. And in fact, given that most of the world is using a browser that can’t properly handle XHTML at all, I’d rather be using HTML 4.01 Strict. But WordPress looks the best of the bunch so far.
And I’ve just spent 3/4 of an hour trying out the various WordPress “Themes” (What’s wrong with “styles”, Guys?), and come back to the default – somebody has given this a lot of thought.
