I'm re-building a content management system for a range of community websites and want to ensure that all website content is standards compliant. In researching this, the consensus seems to be that designing for HTML4.01 strict (with a migration plan to HTML5) is the best current solution for public websites. See:
XHTML1.0 adds complexity to the coding without providing any obvious (to me) benefit.
I've been using fck editor for the last year and I am looking forward to being able to receive standards compliant output so that non-tech users can manage their own web pages and still produce clean markup.
I know that v3 is planned to be XHTML1.0 compliant. However it would then generate tag markup that breaks a HTML4.01 strict page - eg <br /> should be interpreted as <br>> - even though all browsers will accept this. It will certainly prevent such pages passing the w3c validation.
So, I need to know if ckeditor v3 will provide the option to support HTML4.01 strict so that I can decide how best to achieve full standards compliance for these websites.
v3 Support for HTML4.01 Strict
