What is HTML5?

Is it just another language?

By

HTML is the fifth version of the HyperText Markup Language (HTML), a common coding language used in web pages all over the internet.

HTML is on the Top 3 of the most used languages for web page design together with JavaScript and CSS.

The language was created in 1993 and works under the ISO/IEC 15445 standard. It is an extension of Standard Generalised Markup Language (SGML) and has been extended to XHTML.

The first version of HTML to be treated as a standard was launched in November 1995 as part of IETF RFC 1866.
