Internet & Networking "The web is constantly evolving. New and innovative websites are being created every day, pushing the boundaries of HTML in every direction. 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."

...so HTML5 is going back to being more declarative and descriptive (it was a good idea then and still is) - full circle I'd say. too little too late....

hell == html/dhtml/css/javascript/jscript/plugins/activex/xml/"ajax" complicate things to the Nth to keep up with the cross versions, competing products and platform support for all the web technologies. I love hearing about new technology but I can't imagine why anyone would want a new version of any of this to come out - it's a nightmare already.

is HTML the presentation foundation of RIA and/or "describing" the internet?
silverlight 2.0 is the way out of this insanity ;)

html is dead - long live html ;)
