HTML5 VERSION

On January 22nd, 2008, W3C published the latest working draft for HTML 5.

The HTML 5 working group includes AOL, Apple, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Mozilla, Nokia, Opera and many hundred other vendors.

HTML 5 introduces a whole set of new elements that make it much easier to structure pages. Most HTML 4 pages include a variety of common structures, such as headers, footers and columns and today, it is fairly common to mark them up using div elements, giving each a descriptive id or class.

The use of div elements is largely because current versions of HTML 4 lack the necessary semantics for describing these parts more specifically. HTML 5 addresses this issue by introducing new elements for representing each of these different sections.

he div elements can be replaced with the new elements: header, nav, section, article, aside, and footer.

The markup for that document could look like the following:

<body>
<header>...</header>
<nav>...</nav>
<article>
<section> ... </section>
</article>
<aside>...</aside>
<footer>...</footer>
</body>
