Una minientrada para desarrolladores locos:
“This HTML5 specification is like no other—It has been processed with you, the humble web developer, in mind.
The focus of this specification is readability and ease of access. Unlike the full HTML specification, this “web developer edition” removes information that only browser vendors need know.
To read about its conception, construction and future, read the press release.
“HTML5” has at various times been used to refer to a wide variety of technologies, some of which originated in this document, and some of which have only ever been tangentially related.
This specification actually now defines the next generation of HTML after HTML5. HTML5 reached Last Call at the WHATWG in October 2009, and shortly after we started working on some experimental new features that are not as stable as the rest of the specification. The stability of sections is annotated in the margin.
The W3C has also been working on HTML in conjunction with the WHATWG; at the W3C, this document has been split into several parts, and the occasional informative paragraph or example has been removed for technical or editorial reasons. For all intents and purposes, however, the W3C HTML specifications and this specification are equivalent (and they are in fact all generated from the same source document).
