Comparison of layout engines (XHTML 1.1)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following tables compare XHTML 1.1 compatibility and support for a number of layout engines.

XHTML 1.1 which is mainly a modularization of XHTML 1.0, is composed of 20 element modules (7 of which are submodules), including the additional Ruby Annotation Module, and two attribute modules (Server-side Image Map Module and Intrinsic Events Module).

Explanation of tables[edit]

See list of layout engines for the full list.

Values[edit]

These indicate the level of support for the given item in each engine. By default, the most recent version of the engine is implied. However, a specific version number can be listed; when this indicates full support, it's the initial version of the engine fully supporting the item.

Value Meaning
Yes Fully supported
No Has never been supported
Partial Only some values are supported
Incorrect Not implemented correctly in all cases
Experimental May be incomplete or buggy
Nightly build Currently in development; full support is expected
Depends Only supported for the specified conditions
Dropped No longer supported
