HTML5 is a markup language for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web and a core technology of the Internet. It is the fifth revision of the HTML standard (created in 1990 and standardized as HTML4 as of 1997) and, as of November 2012, is still under development. Its core aims have been to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and devices (web browsers, parsers, etc.). HTML5 is intended to subsume not only HTML 4, but XHTML 1 and DOM Level 2 HTML as well.

HTML5 is not software that has to be installed but rather a new version of HTML. Web browsers must support this new version of HTML in order to correctly display web pages using HTML5 functions. It is upon the developers of browsers to update their software to use HTML5; users simply must allow these updates to be done on their computers, but do not have to install additional software.

Answer # 3

(HTML Version 5) The latest generation of HTML from the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG). HTML5 was designed to provide a comprehensive application development platform for Web pages that eliminates the need to install third-party browser plug-ins such as Java and Flash. HTML5 provides support for 2D graphics (see canvas element), document editing, drag and drop, browser history management, audio and video playback and local file storage (see Web storage).

The first draft of HTML5 was released from the W3C in early 2008, while the final standard is expected in 2014. Up-to-date Web browsers support most of the published features of HTML5, as well as most Web pages written in previous versions of HTML.

HTML, JavaScript and Style Sheets (CSS)
HTML5 consolidates and formalizes previous coding methods. Although JavaScript had been the de facto programming language for years with HTML, HTML5 makes it part of the standard. The same goes for style sheets, which are separate files that define the fonts used in the document page. Prior to HTML5, a Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) was an option; however, in HTML5, certain layout tags are no longer permitted in the body of a page and must be defined in the style sheet (see Cascading Style Sheet).

To ensure compatibility, both HTML5 and XHTML5 are being developed in parallel. However, HTML5 is expected to be the standard for Web page development, and XHTML may go by the wayside. See HTML and XHTML.
