[Mono-devel-list] XhtmlTextWriter

My original intent behind creating the XhtmlTextWriter was to provide a way
for mod_mono and xsp to create valid Xhtml markup and not be bound/hindered
by the non-compliant code that ASP.NET generates.

If there are changes that I could make which would make this more
appealing/feasible in a web environment, please let me know.  I didn't think
that I made use of an XML writer in there.  The majority of the code is the
same as the code in the current HtmlTextWriter.cs from CVS.  I modified it
slightly to accommodate for XHTML being stricter than HTML.

Let me know what I can do to help out.


:: Just for the record: we discussed this last night, and I do 
:: not believe that we should use the XML writer to produce 
:: XHTML, given that it is technically incorrect to return 
:: text/xml when a browser requests text/html.
:: There is some document describing the problems that browsers 
:: can run into.  The XhtmlTextWriter should be used for things 
:: where proper HTML will be embedded in an XML document.
