Hello, how are you doing?
After close examination on rather to use HTML5, or just use HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.1, I had decided to go with the later. True, I would have loved to use HTML5 and help advance it's place in the Web Development World. But because I am new to Web Development, and too, received many suggestions from those whom are experienced in WordPress and in Design of it's themes that I should stick to just plain HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.1. And so, this is my over all plan.
With that being said, I would still like to use CSS3. This for many reasons, one that sticks out most is, I don't need to use many extra images. Example, I have created a beautiful Search Form just using plain CSS3.
Now, my question is, although I have scraped the HTML5 idea, for now that is, and decided to use HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.1, is it OK to still use CSS3 without HTML5? And I know that some Older IE Browsers don't support CSS3, but should I be concerned?
As far as dealing with Earlier Versions of IE ( IE8, IE7, IE6), is this a huge issue, and are their ways to handle such issues. And what would you suggest is the proper approach to dealing with again IE issues? Are their any external Fix's when it come to CSS3 and IE issues?
