History of HTML HTML first published 1991 2012 2002 -200 9 2000 HTML 2.0 HTML 3.2 HTML 4.01 XHTML 1.0 XHTML 2.0 HTML5 1995 1997 1999 HTML5 is much more tolerant and can handle markup from all the prior versions. Though HTML5 was published officially in 2012, it has been in development since 2004. After HTML 4.01 was released, focus shifted to XHTML and its stricter standards. XHTML 2.0 had even stricter standards than 1.0, rejecting web pages that did not comply. It fell out of favor gradually and was abandoned completely in 2009.

What is HTML5? HTML5 is the newest version of HTML, only recently gaining partial support by the makers of web browsers. It incorporates all features from earlier versions of HTML, including the stricter XHTML. It adds a diverse set of new tools for the web developer to use. It is still a work in progress. No browsers have full HTML5 support. It will be many years – perhaps not until 2018 or later - before being fully defined and supported.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
