What is HTML5?

HTML5 is the new standard for HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.0 and DOM Level 2 HTML.

Why?

The main goal is to reduce the need for proprietary RIA technologies, such as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight and Sun JavaFX (with new elements like <video>, <canvas> and <audio>, to adapt HTML to the semantic web concept (with new elements like <nav>, <header> and <footer>) and to decrease bugs by allowing the browser to auto-correct mistakes more easily.
