The section "Distinction between W3C's HTML5 and WHATWG's HTML" contains personal names and looks very aggressive. Please, refactor it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:1458:204:1:0:0:101:E1AC (talk) 12:04, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

Not moved. There is a fairly clear consensus against the proposed move at this time. bd2412T 18:47, 2 September 2018 (UTC)
HTML5 → HTML 5 – Updating article title to match the article contents which state that HTML 5 is now the correct name. Dónal O'Flynn (talk) 02:34, 15 August 2018 (UTC) --Relisting.wbm1058 (talk) 10:59, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
Comment: Do reliable sources treat "HTML5" as one word? ONR(talk) 08:19, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
Comment: Not anymore. See the very first reference in the article Dónal O'Flynn(talk) 19:44, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
So the WP:OFFICIAL name has been changed by the World Wide Web Consortium. However, the WP:COMMONNAME may not yet have fallen in line with that. Ordinarily, when a company changes its name or the naming rights to a sports venue are sold, I figure that "reliable sources" will go along, but in cases like this, it may not be that easy to quickly change a widely adopted name. I search for "HTML 5" and Google asks me, "Did you mean: HTML5". None of these have switched to the new name yet:
On the other hand, there's the MOS:TM argument. Per this blog posting, "Calling HTML 5 “HTML5” is inconsistent and grammatically wrong." As he points out, this blog argues that "Sometimes people kept writing “HTML5” and sometimes “HTML 5” (even on whatwg.org). This kind of inconsistency is bad for branding", which seems to me the quintessential argument for adding the space, per Wikipedia's manual of style for trademarks. HTML 5, often stylized HTML5... Leaning support. wbm1058 (talk) 10:59, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
Oppose. Just because HTML 5.2 is called HTML 5.2 does not mean that HTML5 is not called HTML5. It's not the same. wumbolo^^^ 21:17, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

The to-do list above includes "Cleanup : Distinction between W3C's HTML5 and WHATWG's HTML". Has this item been accomplished by the addition of the table in the new section Differences between the two standards?

I have now removed that item from the to-do list.

@Ennex2: Thanks. I did much of that cleanup job, but wasn't aware of the to-do list. — SMcCandlish☏¢ 😼 11:45, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
The main infobox on the article page says the file extension is ".html", with the ".html" in a little box. I tried editing it to add "or .htm", but I don't see way to put the ".htm" in a separate box with the "or" outside the boxes. So I thought I would ask here how to do this (or someone else to do it), rather than make that change, which would be technically incorrect. (It would mean that there is one extension, ".html or .htm".)

Okay, I just noticed that in the second infobox, for XHTML5, the value box for file extension contains ".xhtml, .html". So I'm going to go ahead and change that in the first infobox to ".html, .htm".
