HyperText Markup Language 5

HTML5 is a markup language used for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web and a core technology of the Internet.

HTML5 was specially designed to deliver rich content without the need for additional plugins. The current version delivers everything from animation to graphics, music to movies, and can also be used to build complicated Web applications.

HTML5 is also cross-platform. It is designed to work whether you are using a PC, or a tablet, a smart phone, or a smart TV.

Historical perspective: HTML5 is the latest standard for HTML. The previous version of HTML, HTML 4.01, came in 1999, and the Internet has changed significantly since then. HTML5 was designed to replace both HTML 4, XHTML, and the HTML DOM Level 2.
