Hey everyone...! I know I know, I don't even deserve to say sorry being gone so long, but I had some things I had to take care of. Anyways I am back now and I promise never to run away like dis ever again. SORRY all my readers for I ws nt here. Today I am gonna tell you all about HTML5.

 It is the fifth version of the standard HTML which aims at improving the language with support for the latest multimedia technology while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and other devices as well. HTML5 is intended to contain not only HTML4, but also XHTML1 and DOM Level 2 HTML as well...It contains detailed processing models to encourage more inter operable implementations---- it not only extends, but also improves and rationalizes the markup available for documents, and introduces markup and APIs for more complicated web applications hence making it completely suitable for cross platform mobile applications.
Moreover HTML5 can run on low powered devices hence making it even more desirable for applications being developed for smartphones or tablets....

HTML5 is also embedded with many new syntactical features like <audio>, <video> and <canvass> etc... and the Scalable Vector Graphic ( SVG) which replaces the use of generic <object> tags. 

"Even as innovation continues, advancing HTML5 to Recommendation provides the entire Web ecosystem with a stable, tested, interoperable standard. The decision to schedule the HTML5 Last Call for May 2011 was an important step in setting industry expectations. Today we take the next step, announcing 2014 as the target for Recommendation."
