Difference between HTML and HTML5

Difference between HTML and HTML5

HTML is the World Wide Web’s core markup language. Originally designed to semantically describe scientific documents, it has since evolved to describe much more. In this blog, we will discuss more about the Difference between HTML and HTML5.

Most pages on the web today were built using HTML4. Although much improved since the first version of HTML was written in 1993, HTML4 still had its limitations. It’s biggest was if web developers or designers wanted to add content or features to their site that weren’t supported in HTML. In that case, they would have to use non-standard proprietary technologies, like Adobe Flash, which required users to install browser plugins. Even then, some users wouldn’t be able to access that content or feature. Users on iPhones and iPads, for example, wouldn’t be able to since those devices don’t support Flash.

Cue, HTML5. HTML5 was designed to cut out the need for those non-standard proprietary technologies. With this new version of HTML, you can create web applications that work offline, support high-definition video and animations, and know where you are geographically located.

:-To understand how HTML5 can do all that, let’s look at what’s new in this latest version of HTML.


What is new in HTML5:-


1. Making code easier to read for users and screen readers.

2. Reducing the overlap between HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

3. Promoting design responsiveness and consistency across browsers.

4. Supporting multimedia without the need for Flash or other.


New Semantic Elements

HTML5 introduced several new semantically meaningful tags. These include <section>, <header>, <footer> <nav>, <mark>, <figure>, <aside> <figcaption>, <data>, <time>, <output>, <progress>, <meter> and <main>. These make it easier to write cleaner code that clearly delineates style from content, which is particularly important to users with assistive technologies like screen readers


Before this to building snapchat icon was not possible as I experienced

But now as following scripting its possible


<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang=“en”>


    <meta charset=“UTF-8”>

    <meta name=“viewport” content=“width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0”>

What is CSS?

CSS is a language that defines the design and layout of web pages. In other words, CSS controls how web pages look when loaded in a browser. We call this design and layout the “style” of the page. CSS is the standard language for styling and typically works in conjunction with HTML (the language that defines the content of web pages).


What is the difference between HTML and CSS?

HTML and CSS go hand-in-hand in building the web pages we know and love. However, these are distinct languages, and it’s important to understand their different purposes.

HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) determines the contents of a web page, including text, links, images, videos etc. An HTML file lists all of the “things” on a page, but it doesn’t specify how these things look when displayed in a browser.


Benefits of CSS:-

Less coding: Developers can use CSS to apply the same styling to multiple pages and page elements across a website, saving huge amounts of time and reducing the chance of errors. Modifying a site-wide style requires changing just a snippet of code.

More styling options: You can do a lot with CSS, much more than was permitted by the original HTML styling system. With a clear vision, CSS know-how, and some patience, you can customize a website exactly to your preference.

Standardization: Since CSS is the uniform language for styling web pages, a developer or designer can understand the styling for any website by looking at the CSS files.

Better performance: CSS reduces the amount of repetitive styling code. Less code means smaller files, and smaller files mean faster page load times.

What is Compare in Javascript?:-

Comparing things in JavaScript is relatively straightforward. You can check if something is or is not equal to, less than, or greater than something else using their related math symbols. Checking if two things are equal has a little bit of nuance, and you will learn about that shortly.

For now, look below to see a table of these operators. Assume that x is equal to 5 for all of these examples.

Take note of the difference between a double equal sign and a triple equal sign. A double equal sign only checks if the values are the same, while a triple equal sign checks that both the value and type are the same. This is why x == “5” is true, but x === “5” is false. X may be equal to 5, but if you put quotes around 5, it is no longer a number data type. Instead, it’s a string
