HTML specification

HTML specification is an option that tells Rapid PHP which HTML language specification to use for creating code with such features as Inspector and Auto Complete.

For example, if you wish to write XHTML 1.0 compliant markup code, you must activate XHTML 1.0 definition.

To change default HTML specification

  1. On the Options menu, click Preferences.
  2. In Preferences window, click Language Options folder.
  3. Click HTML.
  4. From drop down box, select HTML language definition.
  5. Click OK.


  • By default, Rapid PHP automatically selects HTML specification based on the DOCTYPE tag of current document and default HTML specification is used only if no valid DOCTYPE tags are present. You can change this behavior in Preferences window near HTML Language Specification box.
