Don't use software

It's really a simple switch over. Don't buy software for something that you can google and do yourself in 5 mins.

don't use software just check the tags

xhtml is just adding a / to ends of non closed tags

such as breaks "br", image "img" and "hr" tags.

Those are the most common, others have their closing tags.
Work with the script directly, you'll enjoy building the page more than using a Software package like ColdFusion or Dreamweaver.

it all depends on the site being converted

it may be simple to convert from html to xhtml, but depending on the site, it may be extremely time consuming and very tedious.

decent software can make the conversion much easier...again, depending on the site to be converted.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
