    Html5?

    "I'm a former web developer now focusing on internet marketing education and strategy development. I just received a tweet
    "There is a lot of misinformation on HTML5, even on prominent blogs. Best place for info is the spec doc: http://w3c.org & http://whatwg.org/"
    Nothing there tells me the benefits that I as an internet marketer should know when talking to developers about their site development capabilities.

    When I was a developer using XHTML 1.0 Strict in combination with CSS, I thought I was hot stuff for being W3C standards compliant. So what does HTML5 bring to the table that will be useful for me to know in my conversation with web developers?

    Thanks Alex. I still don't get the "why" or benefits of HTML5.

    No problem. Between the posts and the link I posted in the other thread, you should be able to figure all of that out.

    paulcj2, many of the differences are additional tags (giving extra semantic value).

    You might find the following document an easier way of understanding what has changed since the last HTML version...
