Difference between XHTML and DHTML

Q: What is the difference between XHTML and DHTML?

A: XHTML is a more structured version of HTML, which
sits nicely with the XML structure. XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is used to identify the data contents (i.e. name, address, phone, etc.) XML can then be used with XSLT to render the contents in different ways. Couple XML with HTML and you have a XHTML.

DHTML (Dynamic Hypertext Markup Language) is a Microsoft derived term. It is a combination of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It all works via the DOM (Document Object
Model). This is a method of referencing objects within a document so that
you can manipulate them through JavaScript.
