  • XHTML Validation built in. So, if you have an invalid tag: error. Invalid attribute: error. And two identical IDs in the same document: error. Optional, of course. But handy!

  • New Markaby::Fragment class adds much flexibility. If it discovers you are using a tag as a string, the tag is removed from the stream. (div { strong("Real") + " Giraffes" })

  • The prevailing rule now is: if you want it escaped, pass it as an arg. If not, pass it to a block.

  • Again, escaped: h1("Me & You Have a Giraffe")

  • And, not escaped: h1 { "<a href='/'>Home</a>" }

  • Less method_missing, meaning: faster calls all around. Tag methods generated based on doctype.

  • The html method doesn't write the doctype tags and meta tags. You must use xhtml_transitional or xhtml_strict methods to do that.

  • The img method doesn't try to inject an empty alt tag and a zero border. No more of that.
