What is HTML 5?
HTML5 is the next version of HTML. This will introduce some brand new features which will make building HTML even easier. This is by introducing features which to make your website layout clearer to both coders and search engines. This can help search engines because of the header, footer, nav and article tags. These are newly introduced tags which define the main areas of a website. If you can tell the search engines that the nav will hold links to navigate around the site then they can use all the links in this section. The article tag is probably the most important tag, as content is the most important part of a page you can let the search engines know that this area is where all the content is. Apart from the new tags which are included in HTML5 it also introduces a feast of APIs which allow you to make graphical drawings, store data offline and drag and drop that has already found its way into Gmail. HTML5's most touted features are media playback and offline storage. HTML5 lets sites directly embed media with the simple HTML tags <video> and <audio>, no plugins required.
