HTML5

HTML5 is the new HTML specification currently being developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG). Both W3C and WHATWG have working documents for the new specification (HTML5: A Vocabulary and Associated API’s for HTML and XHTML and HTML: Living Standard respectively) with the same definition of HTML5: The World Wide Web's markup language has always been HTML. HTML was primarily designed as a language for semantically describing scientific documents, although its general design and adaptations over the years have enabled it to be used to describe a number of other types of documents. The main area that has not been adequately addressed by HTML is a vague subject referred to as Web Applications. This specification attempts to rectify this, while at the same time updating the HTML specifications to address issues raised in the past few years. The WHATWG also has a visual representation of where HTML5 fits with the other specifications.

One major difference between HTML5 and the earlier specification is the addition of JavaScript API’s (Application Programing Interfaces). JavaScript is a client side scripting language having it as part of the HTML web page means that it is up to the browser to do something with it. (Devlin 2012)
