    HTML5 differences

    What are the differences between HTML5 and HTML 4.01? Is it supported by any browsers yet too?

    HTML 4.01 is fully normative and supported by all mainstream browsers. HTML5 isn't and is still in experimental stage: http://www.w3.org/TR/html5-diff/

    SitePoint needs an HTML5 sticky, despite its DRAFT nature.

    I thought, it's okay start upgrading knowledge but may be draft can be changed. The buzz seems to be growing.

    Not sure what you mean. No browser supports XHTML2. It's dead.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the future of XHTML

    Basically, the W3C saw the WHATWG getting all this attention with their HTML5 and realised they'd better drop the dead parrot and get on the winning horse.

    HTML5 does borrow some things from XHTML2 (like roles), and used more backwards-compatible solutions to problems (xhtml allowed hrefs on many elements; HTML5 lets you just wrap anchors around blocks).
