The W3C published the HTML 5 draft, which is a major revision of the markup language commonly used on webpage’s. The W3C expects HTML 5 to be the open, royalty-free specification for rich web content.

"HTML is of course a very important standard," said Tim Berners-Lee, author of the first version of HTML and W3C Director. "I am glad to see that the community of developers, including browser vendors, is working together to create the best possible path for the Web. To integrate the input of so many people is hard work, as is the challenge of balancing stability with innovation, pragmatism with idealism."

The biggest change with the new HTML 5 standard is new APIs for drawing 2-D graphics and embedding and controlling audio and video content. This is also the first version of HTML developed under the W3C’s Royalty-Free patent policy.
