HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language and the usual or the normal HTML that we know of is also known as HTML4 bearing its version number. It is basically the language used by all brands of web browsers that you can download used to display the contents of a website. Tim Berners-Lee is the person who developed HTML or the HTML4 and is the oldest version since its creation in 1990.

The HTML or HTML4 has an exceptionally loose syntax which is great for amateur developers. HTML5 is the latest version and is continuously being adopted at present by most websites. Although it’s already being used by most websites that you can find, it’s still under development. Below is a list of several new HTML5 tags:
<!– … –> – Defines a comment.
<!DOCTYPE> – Defines the document type.
<a> – Defines a hyperlink.
<abbr> – Defines an abbreviation.
<acronym> – Defines an acronym and is not supported in HTML5.
<address> – Defines contact information for the author/owner of a document.

For the complete reference of HTML5 tags, please refer to W3Schools
