HTML5 — How came to be ?

HTML gone throughtoo manystepsto bein this form we will
talk about this as we can :
Must to know

In 1993, Dave Raggerr proposed HTML+ as an evolution of the HTML standard. the proposal was never implemented, and it was
superseded by HTML 2.0. HTML 2.0 was a“retro-spec
,” which means it formalized features already in common use. “this specification
brings together, clarifies, and formalizes
a set of features that roughly corresponds to the
capabilities of HTML in common use prior to June 1994.”
Dave later wrote HTML 3.0, based on his earlier HTML+ draft. Outside of the W3C’s ownreference implementation, Arena), HTML 3.0 was never implemented, and it was superseded by HTML 3.2, another “retro-spec”: “ HTML 3.2 adds widely deployed features such as tables, applets and text flow around images, while providing full backwards compatibility with the existing standard HTML 2.0.”
Dave later co-authored HTML 4.0, developed HTML Tidy , and went on to help with XHTML, XForms, MathML, and other modern W3C specifications. Let us imagine HTML not Changed from long time
they have its rules and all browser walk on there steps ,yes
lets say :

  • HTTP still exists. HTTP
  • successfully evolved from 0.9
    into 1.0 and later 1.1. And still it
  • HTML still exists. that
    rudimentary data format — itdidn’t even support inline images!
    —successfully evolved into 2.0, 3.2, 4.0. HTML is an unbroken line
  • HTML has always been a conversation between browser
    makers, authors, standards wonks, and other
  • None of the browsers from 1993 still exist in any recognizable
    form. Netscape Navigatorwas abandoned in 1998 and rewritten from
    scratch to create the Mozilla Suite, which
    was then forked to create Firefox. Internet Explorer had its humble
    “beginnings” in “Microsoft Plus! for Windows 95,”
  • Some of the operating systems from 1993 still exist, but none of
    them are relevant to the modern web.

In December 1997, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) published HTML4.0 and promptly shut down the HTML Working Group

Less than two months later, a separate W3C Working Group published XML 1.0 theW3C re-chartered the HTML Working Group to create this “suite of XML tag-sets.” their first step,

in December 1998, was a draft of an interim specification that simply reformulated HTML in XML without adding any new elements or attributes their next target was web forms.
In August 1999, the same HTML Working Group published
a first draft of XHTML Extended Forms.

A few months later, “ XHTML Extended Forms” was renamed “XForms” and moved to its own Working Group. that group worked in parallel with the HTML Working Group and finally published the first edition of XForms 1.0 in October 2003

In May 2001, they published the first edition of XHTML 1.1, that added only a few minor features on top of XHTML 1.0, but also eliminated the “Appendix C” loophole. Starting with version 1.1, all XHTML documents were to be served with a MIME type of application/xhtml+xml


Are you think that your document written in XHTML??, I think you are wrong.Browsers have always been “forgiving” with HTML. If you create an HTML page but forget the </head> tag, browsers will display the page anyway.You are supposed to nest tags hierarchically — closing them in last-in-first-out order — but if you create markup like <b><i></b></i>, browsers will just deal with it (somehow) and move on without displaying an error message.

By some estimates, over 99% of HTML pages on the web today have at least one error in them. But because these errors don’t cause browsers to display visible error messages, nobody ever fixes them. so you use the synatx Not the rules of XML, and if we do 99% of the Web-pages all over the world will not work !!


simply it was unofficial group of developers that focus in web applications at the beginning W3C ignored them but ….. !!
by October 2006, it was clear that the WHAT Working Group had picked up serious momentum, while XHTML 2 was still languishing in draft form, unimplemented by any major browser. In October 2006, TimBerners- Lee, the founder of the W3C itself, announced that the W3C would work together with the WHAT Working Group to evolve



One of the first things the newly
re-chartered W3C HTML Working Group decided was to rename “Web
Applications 1.0” to “HTML5.” And here we are, diving into HTML5

And here we are 😀 … at all i
know that post not technical as u expect but you have to know these
thanks for your reading and wait us soon with new
posts …. so so
nice …bye
