HTML emerged more than 20 years ago and has since seen some reformulation of the rules that might lead to misinterpretations if the HTML version of the document was not made explicit. 3.

Below you find a list of various DTDs. dtd"> Spaces and line breaks Spaces and line breaks in HTML source code do not translate directly into spaces and line breaks in the browser presentation. While line breaks are ignored altogether, any number of consecutive spaces are presented as a single space.

So why should we care about style? First of all, one should always care about style. But second, as CSS is so handy for developers,
