XHTML is part of the front-end developer's holy trinity: XHTML, CSS, Javascript. XHTML handles the primary document structure of XHTML elements. CSS handles page appearance. Javascript handles page behavior.

The boundaries are a little slippery but basically that's the difference; so if you want to work with variables like in a server side language, the structure of XHTML elements can't do that. You need Javascript, which is why Old Pedant has put together this beautifully designed script.
