I'm new to this forum and to writing web pages. I've enjoyed the book so far. It appears to be well organized and gives a nice overview of where web programming has been and where it is going. I am hoping to build my site using Strict XHTML but have run into some confusion about deprecated attributes.
For example, the name attribute is marked as deprecated. I'm currently in chapter six, however, and there is a lot of discussion about name/value pairs. It's not clear whether someone writing Strict XHTML should be using id/value pairs instead.
A more general question: If an attribute has been deprecated, is it deprecated for all elements that it is associated with?
