    So was I. XHTML 2 offered some real benefits that would be achieved once browsers supported them.

    HTML 5 isn't adding anything that isn't already available in HTML 4.01 (all it is doing is adding a few aliases for tags that already exist - mostly subsets of the <object> tag) and is in fact going backwards in some areas. Those tags that were deprecated in HTML 4 that have been added back in the HTML 5 draft were declared to be obsolete for a reason and that reason still exists.

    One thing which REALLY bug's me about HTML5 is the fact they deprecated the rev attribute (it played it's part as a mirror opposite to rel - not role) because it had a genuine use for measuring anchor directions in social networking and Microformats (especially for search engines) to understand the relationships between pages. I know it was abused and poorly adopted but it had real potential and with it gone there's no replacement for it (I even debated this with the spec editor, lol).

    I knew they were reintroducing garbage tags that are unnecessary but I didn't realise that they are also getting rid of useful attributes. Another good reason to ignore HTML 5 and stick with HTML 4.01 and another clear indication of how big a backwards step that HTML 5 is. There are just so many things that show that the people who are "designing" HTML 5 don't have the first clue as to the purpose of HTML and shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the web.
