Surprising results again, at least for me. “Don’t Care – As long as there isn’t a standards war” was actually in the lead for a little while, but was ultimately beat out by “XHMTL 2“.

I cast my vote for No Standards War. I can adapt to anything and both the new formats have cool stuff. I assume XHTML 2 is winning because it sounds cooler more modern and how dominant XHTML 1 is right now. If I HAD to pick though, I think HMTL 5 is better.

A few people didn’t know what I was talking about. If you need to get up to speed, I did an article roundup a little while ago. As for those “Other” folks, feel free to chime in and explain!

I’ll leave this up for a few days for any stragglers then a new poll will be going up shortly. Remember old polls aren’t gone forever, there is a Polls Archive where you can go check out old polls, and even still vote. I don’t have any navigation anywhere to get to that yet, gotta get around to that someday.
