    There is nothing called "html" - there are different _versions_ of HTML, latest being HTML 5. There are usually changes between each iteration, elements get added or removed, sometimes specifics gets changed. However, there are no _significant_ changes between the different versions - if you create your HTML document properly, following semantic guidelines and the intentions of the creator, a HTML 3 document will work just as well if run with a HTML 5 doctype. And vice versa, actually.

    Can be wrong, but HTML5 is more mobile friendly than the previous versions.

    I disagree, HTML5 tags like nav, article, aside are confusing and redundant to h1...h6 and hr.

    This article is very interesting: http://cutcodedown.com/article/whats_wrong_with_HTML_5

    HTML: HyperText Markup Language, used to create Web structure have tags wrapping content which gets formatted accordingly.

    HTML 5: Latest HTML standard, have strong support for Web 2.0 i.e not just text, but all kinds of media (audio, video, etc.) and also have great Form related options added to it recently :)

    XML: eXtensible Markup Language: It's a more general way of storing/representing Data,

    XHTML: Used to be standard for web, when all HTML was restricted to XML strict rules.

    Yeah? No. Web 2.0 is a term coined by Tim O'Reilly more than a decade ago[sup]1[/sup]. It has nothing to do with html specifications.

    Further, a great many, maybe even most, of the new element tags do nothing to improve text markup and most soi-disant web designers miss-use the new tags. New elements such as section totally break the concept of accessibility by the upgefucht treatment of headings. The media tags are completely redundant to the object element.

    New input types are helpful for validation, but remember, you still need to validate server-side. And attributes such as placeholder are nearly always misused as a replacement for the label element; another knife in the back of accessibility.

    Why? Can you justify that statement? Yeah, there are some that are interesting, even beneficial, but most are redundant and encourage code bloat. Worse, some actually encourage misuse of themselves, not to mention screwing over accessibility. Have you even read Section 4.3 of the html5 recommendation? Jeezus, what a cluster….

    Video and audio bring nothing to the table that wasn't already there in the object element. HTML5 even brings back the stupidity that is the iframe (deprecated in 1998), that is redundant to object.

    I mostly used the new audio and video tags from HTML5. The previous HTML version requires plugins that the viewer might have to install but the HTML5 audio and video solves that problem. To me, that was important. I have not used any of the other new tags such as <canvas> and <article> but perhaps it might come in handy someday.

    Besides HTML5 still retains many of the common tags found in earlier version.

    I found this professional explanetion from one experts site! HTML5 is the fifth revision of the HTML standard. HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It is a well known mark up language used to develop web pages. The data between these tags is usually the content.Elements of HTML are the basic building blocks of all websites. HTML allows images and objects to be embedded in the webpage.The core aims of HTML5 have been to ‘improve the language with support for the latest. XHTML markup must conform to the markup standards defined in a HTML DTD. So,
    Some differences between HTML5 and XHTML:

    • XHTML is hybrid between HTML and XML, whereas HTML5 is a version of HTML.
    • XHTML and HTML are two different ways of representing markup.
    • XHTML is almost identical to HTML 4.01. HTML5 is the latest version of HTML.
    • In XHTML, all tags, once opened, must be closed. HTML is less strict.
    • XHTML has some restrictions about what tags can be nested inside each other.
    • XHTML is stricter version of HTML; HTML5 is an upgrade of HTML.
    • XHTML uses XML parsing requirements. HTML uses its own.
    • HTML does not have a well-formedness constraint, no errors are fatal. In XHTML, well-formedness errors are fatal.
    • In HTML5, one does not need to manually declare the namespace.
    • In HTML5, one does not need to add type attributes to script and style elements.
    • In HTML5, one must use <!DOCTYPE html>, instead of a long doctype.
    • In HTML5, the charset declaration is much simpler.
    • In HTML5, one does not have a choice to include or not include a dtd uri in the doctype or a choice between transitional and strict.
    • In HTML5, one can use embed if needed.
    • XHTML 5 is the XML serialization of HTML 5.
    • “[HTML 5] is intended to replace XHTML 1.0 as the normative definition of the XML serialization of the HTML vocabulary."

    HTML 5 is a latest updated version of HTML. It’s much similar to HTML. But difference is HTML 5 contains much better support for media such as, an audio and video tag.

    HTML5 is the latest version of HTML and new elements are introduce in this version like Header, Footer, Aside, Article, Video, Audio etc. These new elements make Html more simple and stylish. The new canvas element is introduced instead of flash and Doctype declaration is much simple in html5 instead of other versions. Also, there are some elements which are not supported by HTML5 like the applet, acronym, basefont, big, center, dir, font, frame, frameset and lots more.

    HTML 5 is nothing but the next version of HTML. Following are the difference points -
    • Audio and video were not part of previous HTML version specifications, however, both are the integral part of HTML5 specifications.
    • Vector graphics is also an integral part of HTML5 such as SVG and canvas while vector graphics is possible in HTML with the help of various technologies such as VML, Silverlight, Flash, etc.
    • In HTML, browser cache can be used as temporary storage. In case of HTML5, application cache, web SQL database, and web storage is used.

    The main difference between HTML and HTML 5:
    HTML 5 is advance version of HTML.
    HTML form only static webpages where as HTML 5 form static as well as dynamic webpages.
