The current version being used on the Internet is version 4.01 and was introduced in 1999. HTML5 is being introduced as a new standard, although it has not been ratified by the World Wide Consortium. It includes many new functions, such as built-in video playing, third party video players will not be required. It will allow for inline editing and moving of objects without requiring plugins. In conjunction with CSS3, it will make it really easy to use any font and add nice modern touches such as borders, round corners and shadow around text, photographs and boxes.

HTML5 should obviate the need for these workarounds, making it simpler to create, faster and more consistent  in operation. Not all browsers can read the improved methods of writing the code. At this time Safari 4.0 and Firefox 3.5 are the most advanced browsers and they display most of the HTML5 tags. Internet Explorer is the worst at following standards.
