    Question XHTML or HTML

    I am building a new website and I want to design it, to last for a long time WITHOUT changing it's document type every 5 years (or more).
    So what should I use XHTML or HTML? (every suggestion will be helpful)

    It really doesn't matter. Seriously. XHTML 1.0 and HTML 4.01 will be rendered as they are now for the foreseeable future. Just because a new standard comes out doesn't mean you have to update to it.

    Question

    Is XHTML (browser rendering) faster than normal HTML?

    Here is a site that might be helpful in your decision.

    Apostropartheid makes a good point, although I prefer XHTML myself.

    I prefer XHTML for what it stands for, none of this "easier to maintain business" (people are fooling themselves when they say this.)
    They both render at the same speed because the browser does not make a distinction between them when served as text/html.
    Really. It doesn't matter. Pick one at random if you have to.
