First it is important to notice that the HTML5 standard is a Living standard that has not yet been finalized.

However, supported by all the strongest players - and already widely implemented - it is commonly accepted to be the future standard.

Even though the title of this document includes HTML5 - it is very little I have to say about the basics on generic HTML5. There are so many very good web pages describing HTML5, that there is no reason to repeat it herein. Please refer to the references below.

The basics

The header of HTML5 has been simplified. Below you will find the simple syntax of a HTML5 document:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta name="keywords" content="dojo, dijit, HTML5"> <!-- Note: NO empty-element tag is required! -->
    <meta name="author" content="Peter Stig Andersen">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="default.css" type="text/css">

    <p>Note the simple doctype declaration in HTML5.</p>
