The web is in a huge transition moving from XHTML to HTML5
This is a slow process since HTML5 is not yet a standard, not until 2014
Only modern versions of browsers support HTML5 features & not all features yet
Most existing websites were created using XHTML
All new websites should be created using the HTML5 doctype
You must have the HTML5 doctype in order to use the new HTML5 tags
When working in Dreamweaver we can set the default doctype
The doctype tells the browser what rules to use to display the web page
You can have strange CSS issues if you do not list a doctype
HTML5 has added new tags to the language to better describe the content areas of a web page, new built in features depending upon the browser and version, and also added some built in browser support for elements that used to require additional plugins to run such as movies
Here are some examples of new HTML5 tags
HTML Versions & DOCTYPE
