2. XHTML compliance at an additional price. What is the exact difference between HTML and XHTML? Why should I pay additional $$ to have my website coded in XHTML1.1? Should I choose XHTML1.0 Transitional, because it is cheaper? How about HTML3? I am sure that if I ask a company that charges differently according to the doctype why it is so, they will not be able to give me an adequate answer. Accoring to such logic, the cheapest website should be coded in XHTML1.1, as coding under standards compliace mode requires less browser hacks, and is much easier to utilize.
3. 100% browser compatibility is not included in the base package. Yes, if you want a website that looks good under older versions of Opera, Konqueror, Safari, Chrome, K-Meleon, NetScape or your favorite exotic browser, you should pay additional $$. A good conversion service is obliged to provide crossbrowser coding, and 100% browser compatibility should be a undisputed default.
Of course, these are cheap and lousy marketing tricks, and such guys make money from the presumed ignorance of their clients, but the fun here is that they make you buy additional stuff, that should be used by default by every developer that respects their own work and coding abilities.
