X/HTML 5 Versus XHTML 2

The Internet

Vlad Alexander writes "The competition to become the next markup language for the Web is heating up. The article X/HTML 5 Versus XHTML 2 focuses on the two specifications vying to become the successor to HTML 4.x and XHTML 1.x, and looks at what's cool and what's uncool about these two competing technologies.The emergence of XHTML 2 and, latterly, of HTML 5, is in response to the need to meet user demand for rich Web-based applications, the need to generate better search results, and requirements to make the Web more accessible to people of all abilities and using all types of devices. XHTML 2 and HTML 5 essentially take different approaches to these issues, and each will have different impacts on the future development of markup languages."
