The XHTML standard has been dropped in favor of HTML 5 which is designed for the modern web. At a time there were two competing upcoming standards: HTML 5 and XHTML 2.0, but XHTML 2.0 was scrapped.

 

HTML 5 is already "standardized" and the W3C and WHATWG encourage its use, saying that the sooner developers are using it the faster it will be fully implemented in all browsers. A large amount of HTML 5 features are fully functional and those that aren't can fall back to other methods.

 

DHTML is a 90s term that just means a combination of HTML, Javascript and CSS to make interactive pages. The term hasn't been used in forever so I would just forget about it if I were you.

 

If you want your website to be compatible with XML readers, it's totally fine to write HTML 5 with XML syntax, this is known as XHTML 5. Don't forget to put the <?xml?> declaration
