At present I am reading the Sitepoint book - HTML5 & CSS3 for the real world:
In the section
"Would the real HTML5 spec please stand up"?
There I read that there is now an additional organization "the Web Hypertext Application Techonology Working Group" WHATWG that serves the living HTML standard, dropping the "5" found at http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps...ork/multipage/ . It is called a "living standard" because it will be in constant development and will no longer be refered to using incremental updates.
The W3C's version of the standard can be found at :
WHATWG was formed by a group of people from Apple, Mozilla and Opera.So what is the difference between the W3C spec and that of WHATWG? Briefly the WHATWG version is a little more informal and experimental (and, some might argue more forward-thinking).
Should you be worried that there are two versions of the spec?
What is your opinion?In short, no.
