Technical Details HTML5 introduces new elements that are not present in previous versions of HTML. It is now no longer based on SGML, it is designed to be backwards compatible with previous older versions of HTML. HTML5 specifies scripting APIs that can be used with both Javascript and the Document Object Model (DOM). There are also a number of new APIs to include: Canvas Element for 2D drawing, Timed Media playback, Document Editing, Drag and Drop, Web Storage amongst others. HTML5 attempts to make semantic replacements for uses of generic elements e.g. footer,audio and video rather than div,span or object.
