HTML5 is a new version of HTML and XHTML


The goal of HTML 5 is to reduce development costs by making strict rules on how to handle all elements (and how to recover from errors). HTML5 introduces new elements often used in modern web sites. Some of those are semantic replacements. HTML 5 is not a W3C recommendation yet!


New tags (and some replacements)

New Tags Definitions
<article> Article
<aside> Content aside from the page content
<audio> Sound content
<canvas> Graphics
<command> Command button
<datalist> Dropdown list
<dialog> Dialog
<embed> Interactive content or plugin
<figcaption> Caption of a figure element
<figure> Group of media content and their caption
<footer> Footer (section or page)
<header> Header (section or page)
<hgroup> Information about a section in a document
<keygen> Generated key in a form
<mark> Marked text
<meter> Measurement within a predefined range
<nav> Navigation links
<output> Output types
<progress> Progress of a task of any kind
<rp> Ruby annotations for browsers that not support the ruby element
<rt> Explanation to ruby annotation
<ruby> Ruby annotations
<section> Defines a section
<source> Media resources
<time> Date and time
<video> Video

HTML5 – The New Markup Language


XHTML 2 language dumped in favour of HTML 5! Where is the semantic web going now – back to nesting and tidy errors?


It seems that that HTML 5 is proceeding while the XHTML is recognized as a rat hole. XHTML 2 Working Group's charter expires at the end of 2009 and the W3C management has decided not to renew it. Some sources say that the maintenance work of fixing bugs will be continued on XHTML 1.1. Does this mean that we’re stuck with the XHTML 1.1?


Perhaps we better go for the new HTML 5, which is developed by the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG). This team has developed a proposal for Web Forms 2.0, and Web Applications 1.0. HTML 5 focuses on web application development and offers browser based applications as multimedia. This could present strong competition to existing browser plug-in technologies such as Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight.


This might be the necessary changes of standards we have been waiting for to fulfil the idea about social semantic web. Probably XHTML is too strict for artificial intelligence and stupid computers.
