What is XHTML?

XHTML is a family of current and future document types and modules that reproduce, subset, and extend HTML 4 [HTML4]. XHTML family document types are XML based, and ultimately are designed to work in conjunction with XML-based user agents. The details of this family and its evolution are discussed in more detail in [XHTMLMOD].

XHTML 1.0 (this specification) is the first document type in the XHTML family. It is a reformulation of the three HTML 4 document types as applications of XML 1.0 [XML]. It is intended to be used as a language for content that is both XML-conforming and, if some simple guidelines are followed, operates in HTML 4 conforming user agents. Developers who migrate their content to XHTML 1.0 will realize the following benefits:

* XHTML documents are XML conforming. They are readily viewed, edited, and validated with standard XML tools.
* XHTML documents can be written to operate as well or better than they did before in existing HTML 4-conforming user agents as well as in new, XHTML 1.0 conforming user agents.

HTML, as originally conceived, was to be a language for the exchange of scientific and other technical documents, suitable for use by non-document specialists. HTML addressed the problem of SGML complexity by specifying a small set of structural and semantic tags suitable for authoring relatively simple documents. In addition to simplifying the document structure, HTML added support for hypertext. Multimedia capabilities were added later.

How is XHTML better than HTML?

Extensibility: Under HTML, an SGML (Standard Generalized Markup Language) application, the addition of a new group of elements requires alteration of the entire DTD (language specification). XML is a simplified subset of SGML. This greatly eases the development and integration of new collections of elements.

Portability: By the year 2002 as much as 75% of Internet access could be carried out on non-PC platforms such as palm computers, televisions, fridges, automobiles, telephones, etc. In most cases these devices will not have the computing power of a desktop computer, and will not be designed to accommodate ill-formed HTML as do current browsers (bloated with code to handle sloppy or proprietary HTML)

FTP Ccmmander

FTP Commander

FTP Client

FTP Commander is simple and easy to use ftp client. It's really the bare minimum with no extra frills or thrills. It offers a no-nonsense interface consisting of two side-by-side local computer and FTP server panels. The latter contains a list of about a dozen pre-set FTP servers. It's easy as pie to establish a connection. All you have to do is select the server you want on the list and push the Connect button. Pre-configuring a list of most frequently accessed servers will make your life even easier. An application also enables users to execute two-way file exchanges and activate multiple downloads. FTP Commander also makes it possible to run programs located on local disks, or view documents. The program occupies far less space on hard drives and RAM than other similar paid programs. It also allows you to delete, rename and and copy files, create and delete directories in the FTP server and work in command line mode. A session log file is also available. The program is free for personal, educational and non-commercial use and does not contain any annoying ad banners.

FTP Commander Pro

That's basically it because anything else would just be overkill. Overkill comes in handy when you're running a professional website equipped with a search engine, database, scripting facilities executed on a server or other such large-scale functions. In this case you'll need to assign access permission to remote servers, synchronize directories that will enable you to take advantage of many other splendid options offered under the new version of FTP Commander Pro (ftp client) program.

FTP Commander Deluxe

For business sites, as opposed to private home pages, information security comes into play. Can you estimate the possible losses in case your web site is hacked? Chances are that the loss would be painful. With this in mind, you should remember the one big FTP-protocol disadvantage: data is transmitted in an un-encrypted form.

That is why FTP Commander Deluxe supports Shell Access (SSH), SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol), FTPS (File Transfer Protocol using SSL), PGP and others.

FTP Voyager

FTP Voyager

What is FTP Voyager®?

FTP Voyager is the most powerful FTP client program for Windows 9x/Me/NT/2000/XP on the market. With an intuitive drag-and-drop interface, FTP Voyager lets you update a Web site with a single click, transfer files directly between FTP servers, and resume interrupted downloads. A perfect tool for Web developers or anyone that moves files on the Internet.

All pricing listed below reflects the price PER copy of software. The "1-Year" and "2-Years" refers to upgrade protection. This allows for free upgrades within that time.
FTP Voyager Standard
Quantity 1 Year Protection 2 Years Protection
FTP Voyager Standard can be bought for $39.95, with 1 year support and upgrades. However, the most copies that you buy of Voyager the cheaper it gets (for example, if you buy more then 20 copies, the cost of each goes down to $34.95). Also buying FTP Voyager for 2 years is cheaper then buying 2 individual copies of the program.

FTP Voyager Secure

FTP Voyager Secure can be purchased for $49.95, with 1 year of support and upgrades. However, like with all FTP Voyager products, the more you buy the cheaper they are, so if you buy more then 20 then each of the products are $44.95. For more information, check the following website;

FTP Voyager also offers bundle packages for up to 100 users.
