[Suggestion] Maintaining a HTML4 and/or XHTML 1.0 strict EOL friezed version of phpMyFAQ

Dear Thorsten Rinne / Development Team

phpMyFAQ is – logically - implementing HTML5 and CSS3 for some time (specially in the administration interface).

However, in many places of the World hardware/OS capable to support browser versions able to interpret these standards are not common.

It would be important (in the opinion of this post author) to maintain a full phpMyFAQ version that uses only HTML4 and/or XHTML 1.0 plus CSS 2 (even without all the features present in the current one).

One could use that older – stable and friezed / not mutable - phpMyFAQ version/variant - with “patched” bugs (etc) - on older hardware, OS and browsers.

Then, when (and if) possible, those users could update their systems and phpMyFAQ-related required components (even phpMyFAQ itself).

High quality open source adoption is specially important in that situation – and phpMyFAQ is an excellent example.

Hi,

we're using HTML5 with a lot of fallbacks and polyfills for old browser with the help of the Bootstrap framework. What are the benefits of an HTML4 or XHTML 1.0 strict layout? I think no version of phpMyFAQ was strict ever, only transitional.
