Since its advent, major websites have been, and in the future, will be built on the basics of HTML. HTML5 eases the process of creating beautiful websites with the help of the various elements, brackets and tags. It is easy to use, compatible with the former versions and the additional elements takes designing up a notch.
1. A Collection of Small Parts
2. Tagging Along
When it comes to web designing, there is no denying that HTML 4 is still the best mark up available. However it takes time to improve and grow. Similarly, banking on the success of HTML 4, HTML5 just makes it grow even more powerful. If a website was built on the HTML 4 markup it would still work perfectly on HTML5. There is no need to throw away the whole mark up or to learn something from the scratch. HTML5 is just an extended version of HTML 4. HTML5 helps in improving an existing website with additional input controls which eases the browser integration on mobile as well as computers.
3. Easy to Learn
If you think that upgrading to or learning HTML5 is a headache, you might want to think again. It is as simple as just changing the doc type. The fact that HTML5 works with a single doc type i.e. <!DOCTYPE html> makes it much easier to use than HTML 4 which had multiple doc types that lead to confusion. All the so called obsolete elements of HTML 4 workperfectly on HTML5 so it will not replace any previous work. However, it will allow users to enhance the performance of the designed element with the inclusion of new semantics like <article>, <section>, <header>, <footer> etc.
4. Well Supported
5. HTML5 is not going anywhere
HTML5 is going to stick around for quite some time so there is no need to worry that something new will make obsolete any time soon. Efforts in learning the language will not be in vein. This language will be around for a pretty long period of time, so designers should start expanding their knowledge of HTML5 as soon as possible.
