XHTML Friends Network

Posted Jan 21, 2004 in XHTML.

Somewhat belatedly, I have made the individuals on my "out there" list XFN friendly. For some reason, I found it very difficult to classify everyone. Perhaps it is because I am publicly stating how I regard people, irrespective of how they regard me.

At some point in the near future, I will use CSS to provide visual cues of those relationships. My structural redesign hasn't extended into the visual realm because I like my existing layout, but XFN may require a little bit of visual tweaking.

Update: Since it is called the XHTML Friends Network, I have decided to only change the head element to include the XFN profile on pages that are served as XHTML. Does anyone think I should add the profile to the HTML-served pages too?

    Absolutely. HTML4 defines the 'profile' attribute and thus it makes sense to do so. XFN is designed to work well with XHTML or HTML.

    Okey dokey. I shall apply the change to the HTML pages immediately.
