HTML 4 has been around for nearly a decade now, and publishers seeking new techniques to provide enhanced functionality are being held back by the constraints of the language and browsers. To give authors more flexibility and interoperability, and enable more interactive and exciting websites and applications, HTML 5 introduces and enhances a wide range of features including form controls, APIs, multimedia, structure, and semantics."

Pre-Standard Implementation

One thing I'm dreading at the moment is that some company (Microsoft) will implement a half-baked version of the standard before it even becomes a standard, and if the standard omits tags MS thinks it can't do without, guess what? The browser wars will begin all over again.

Anyone willing to put money on this?
