	"HTML 5 defines the fifth major revision
	of the core language of the World Wide Web,
	HTML. "HTML 5 differences from HTML 4"
	describes the differences between HTML 4 and

	the changes. This document may not provide

	is still in development. When in doubt, always
	check the HTML 5 specification itself. [HTML5]
