I am trying to use an HTML WYSIWYG program named Coffee Cup. The first question it asks is which HTML format I wish to use. I have NO clue which to use. My pages are EXTREMELY simple. Nothing fancy at all. The default for this software is 5.0. However, it does not permit the wysiwyg feature to be used and asks the user to choose another. I have a screenshow of the choices included with this question. One bit of advice given to me was 4.0. However there are THREE versions of 4.0 and I don't know the difference. I sure need some help.

Sounds like "HTML 4.01 Strict" is all you need to get started.

This EE site uses "XHTML 1.0 Strict".

I use "HTML 4.01 Transitional" for most of my new pages with "XHTML 1.0 Transitional" for the rest.  I have never used the ones from MatML down.
