The new WWW with HTML5 is here now
HTML 5 or HTML5 is a revision of the HTML or the Hypertext Markup Language. The HTML is the standard programming language that is used to describe the contents of a website or a web page. The appearance of HTML5 or its development is to address compatibility issues that concern HTML4, the current HTML standard.
The difference between HTML5 and HTML4 is that with the older version of HTML or the HTML4, it requires APIs and proprietary plug-ins. That’s why sometimes a web page that was created and was tested using one web browser may not open properly on another web browser. With HTML5, it offers 1 common interface so that elements will load much easier.
Unfortunately, not all of the tags you used in HTML4 can be used in HTML5. Many of the tags are now obsolete and cannot be used if your web page is HTML5-compliant. To find out which HTML tags are available for HTML5 and the ones that were obsolete, visit HTML Tag Reference on W3Schools.
