HTML 5 Discussions: Next Version Of Hyper Text Markup Language


Are you aware that the next version of the hyper text markup language [or simply, the language that lets you view all these beautiful web pages on the Internet] is around the corner.

Filename extension     HTML5: .html, .htm
XHTML5: .xhtml, .xht, .xml
Internet media type     HTML5: text/html
XHTML5: application/xhtml+xml, application/xml
HTML 5 is going to change the web-app development scene in the world.

Wikipedia says -

Differences from HTML 4/XHTML 1.x

The following is a cursory list of differences and some specific examples.

  • New parsing rules oriented towards flexible parsing and compatibility
  • New elements – section, article, footer, audio, video, progress, nav, meter, time, aside, canvas, datagrid
  • New types of form controls – dates and times, email, url, search
  • New attributes – ping (on a and area), charset (on meta), async (on script), data-x (where x is a user supplied custom attribute name.)
  • Global attributes (that can be applied for every element) – id, tabindex, hidden
  • Deprecated elements dropped – center, font, strike
  • Frames made invalid.
  • Not based on SGML.
Share your thoughts on HTML 5 and how it's going to change the Internet (read: World 😀 )

Wow!! Frames going to be dropped!! Yes!! I hate frames, and its a good thing that they are dropped.

I think HTML5 also tries to make these controls a little bit more dynamic, thus taking the power of processing and manipulating the presentation of data from the server, and giving it to the browser client.

This with jquery would be an awesome experience for web users.
