edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for HTML5:


Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Article requests : Clarify what HTML5 is and what it means to most people.
  • Cleanup : HTML5 is now uncontroversially a historical standard and not the HTML living standard

NPOV dispute[edit]

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)

Is the "Cleanup" to-do done?[edit]

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? Ennex2 (talk) 01:31, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

I have now removed that item from the to-do list. Ennex2 (talk) 00:25, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

@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)

I've put a similar TODO back up. This article seems confused about whether it's topic is HTML5 or the HTML living standard.Metaquanta (talk) 07:29, 25 December 2019 (UTC)

Filename extension in infobox[edit]

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".) --Ennex2 (talk) 01:46, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

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". --Ennex2 (talk) 11:05, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Confusing first sentence[edit]

"HTML5 is a software solution stack that defines the properties and behaviors of web page content by implementing a markup based pattern to it."

So we have a stack implementing a pattern to content, thereby defining properties and behaviors of content.

I am mystified. Surely this can be stated more clearly, perhaps without the buzzy word "solution". -- FIPAR (talk) 21:25, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

It's really bad and didn't use to be. You should find the most recent clearer version and put it back. Metaquanta (talk) 07:31, 25 December 2019 (UTC)
Done. Restored the version that preceded this:[1]. Metaquanta (talk) 05:15, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
