HTML5 is the new language of the Internet. It is the successor to HTML4, which was released in 1997 and has been powering most websites ever since. However, HTML4 had limitations, and the Internet could not go where envisioned without a new language. HTML5 was started in 2008, and was finalized in 2014.
While HTML4 will be around for a while, the adoption rate of HTML5 is pretty astounding. Already, most Fortune 500 websites are running HTML5, and all standard browsers have majority support for HTML5. The benefit of HTML5 to designers, content managers, users, and search engines is tremendous. If you're not on HTML5 now, you need to be. Now that HTML5 is the standard, HTML4 websites are the clunkers of the web, and users and search engines will know it.
HERO Websites v5 is built entirely in HTML5 and provides full HTML5 benefits to website owners and users.
