About HTML 5
HTML5 is the next major update to the W3C HTML specification providing a standard structure for presenting content on the web. The W3C HTML5 specification adds new features like graphical support through SVG and Canvas, multimedia support like inline video and audio, as well as new APIs to make it easier for developers to create rich, interactive web applications. Like CSS2.1, CSS3 gives designers and developers the ability to apply presentation semantics to their HTML pages
