SVG, MathML, and Xform are the only reason to use xhtml I can think of, consitering that xhtml delivered as xhtml (content="application/xhtml+xml;" not html content="text/html;") dose not work in older browsers.

If you are trying to teach js or php to a beginer then, that would be the way to go, with a line by line break down.

While not a staff member or a Geek U grad, I am a web designer and I would be more than happy to help out with this project.

I'm not sure if it is practical but as I am taking a breather from the next flash tutorial (should be done with the next 24 hours) I was thinking, (no thats not the impractical part :whistling:) with the number of web developers and hobbyists that coem here and the success of Geek U it might be a good thing for the community if we were to start a W3 U (just a though on the name) obviousely based on web design and web application design. although we would need people who were willing to put the time and effort into making it work. Just a though I know it would be a hassle on the part of the admins and I'm not sure if we have enough TT's who would be willing to put the time in, but i know i'de be glad to offer my assistance.



if it seems practical


Like w3schools ?

It seems this effort is gaining some momentum. I'm thinking of creating a new W3 University forum under the Internet category. We'd likely make those interested in teaching moderators of the forum. If it grows we could consider adding a new usergroup for W3 students, and some subforums. For now tutorials etc would simply be pinned topics. Sound okay? Comments, suggestions?

good idea with the tutorials, we should write some ourselves as an addition to those external links i saw somewhere. we should also make a list of suggested text/gui html editors, since that seems to be an often topic ("what text editor to you suggest", and the like). another thing is reasons to build a website; a lot of people would like to build websites, but don't know what to build it on, we should make suggestions in a pinned topic. maybe we could have a "want to build a website?" thread (or another name) where we could write why to build a website, and maybe list those html editors in it. i think we should have that as a pinned thread, and there would be like 3/4 other pinned threads (seperate for html, css, js, php) where everybody would contribute more or less (like in wikipedia). those are my thoughts at the moment

We do have the start of a Wiki. It would be easy enough to add a W3 section there if wanted. :whistling:

A wiki would be good. It would allow the content to be presented better. Threads tend to get very long and hard to read. Then we would link to them in the first post for the js, html, css, html tutorilas.

I think a W3 U is a great idea. I'd be willing to help teach PHP (I'm no expert, but I can code pretty well) and HTML if needed.
