History Hypertext Markup Language dictates how content of a web page will be presented in a browser. Introduced on 1990s. Conceived by Tim Berners-Lee so that different platforms could share information. HTML 4.01 introduced in late 90s.
What is HTML5 Newest Iteration of HTML. Can be written in XHTML and XML. Employs semantic Web. SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) can be embedded in code. Browser can play audio and video natively. Potentially displaces Flash. New Application Programming Interfaces (API).
Why semantic markup <div> is evil and so is flash More intuitive. More specific. Helps search engines parse content. Condenses two sets up markup language.
Why is Flash Bad ‘Cuz Steve Jobs says so. Critics say it is buggy. Critics say is it a resource hog. Critics say is has security flaws. It is closed source. Flash is bad for SEO.
HTML5 is good Easier to use. Eventually better support for audio and video playback. Flexible: Backwards compatible and can handle bad syntax. It will make coders and web developers happy for exactly two weeks.
