HTML5 is under development as the next major markup language from HTML 4.01 and XHTML. The principle aim of HTML5 is to reduce the need for plug-in-based technologies such as Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight. It is intended to embrace the diversity and flexibility of HTML as opposed to simply enforcing a strict set of web standards and as a result is backwards compatible - this means that most of HTML5 can be implemented straight away.
HTML5 is particularly attractive where Flash is not available, specifically for non-standard computer devices such as the iPhone/iPad and mobile devices using the Android operating system.
