Differences HTML5 vs HTML4
Submitted by admin on Fri, 2012-02-17 05:11
HTML has been in continuous evolution since it was introduced to the Internet in the early 1990s. Some features were introduced in specifications; others were introduced in software releases. In some respects, implementations and author practices have converged with each other and with specifications and standards, but in other ways, they continue to diverge.
The HTML5 draft reflects an effort, started in 2004, to study contemporary HTML implementations and deployed content. The draft:
1.Defines a single language called HTML5 which can be written in HTML syntax and in XML syntax.
2.Defines detailed processing models to foster interoperable implementations.
3.Improves markup for documents.
4.Introduces markup and APIs for emerging idioms, such as Web applications.
