A Project Using XHTML as a Print Datastream  


Website Management

XHTML-Print is a simple XHTML based datastream suitable for printing as well as for display.  It is largely based on the W3C's XHTML Basic with the addition of support for cascading style sheets (CSS).  It is targeted for printing in environments where it is not feasible or desirable to install the printer-specific driver.

XHTML-Print is not intended to provide strict layout consistency and repeatability across different printers.  Instead, it provides a simple, broadly supportable print datastream where content preservation and reproduction are the goal.  Simply put, "Content is King."
