I am going to be talking about HTML5 at the next GTALUG meeting.

HTML5 with Myles Braithwaite

After four years since HTML4 was published (Dec. 1997) it looked like the W3C was going to drop the HTML standard (based on SGML) in favour of the more popular XHTML 1.1 (based on XML). A group of browser developers, from Mozilla, Opera, and Apple, decided to form a new working group (June 2004) called WHATWG (Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group) to create a new standard called HTML5 that incorporated many features that would require an extra plugin to be installed.
