HTML: The Living Standard - Edition for Web Developers
Is this HTML5? In short: Yes. In more length: The term "HTML5" is widely used as a buzzword to refer to modern Web technologies, many of which (though by no means all) are developed at the WHATWG ( the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group ), a growing community of people interested in evolving the Web who focuses primarily on the development of HTML and APIs needed for Web applications. The WHATWG work on HTML is all published in one specification parts of which are republished in an edition optimised for Web developers (which you are reading right now). This specification is limited to providing a semantic-level markup language and associated semantic-level scripting APIs for authoring accessible pages on the Web ranging from static documents to dynamic applications. In terms of applications, this specification is targeted specifically at applications that would be expected to be used by users on an occasional basis, or regularly but from disparate locations, with low CPU requirements. Examples of such applications include online purchasing systems, searching systems, games (especially multiplayer online games), public telephone books or address books, communications software (e-mail clients, instant messaging clients, discussion software), document editing software, etc.
