    Hi there,

    Make a mock little web site in HTML 5 and another one in HTML 5 DYNAMIC.
    See how they behave in your PC.

    I would suggest using HTML 5 Dynamic. It (apparently) has facilities to allow page elements that may vary in size. Straight HTML 5 uses fixed positioning and if something changes in size it will overlap other page elements.

    For example, if you embed a News script that pulls articles from a database and displays them, no matter the length of the article, everything else on the page stays where it is. This results in gaps in the page or overlapping elements, depending on the the length of the article.

    Disclaimer: I have yet to develop an HTML 5 site and have continued to use HTML4 + Tables. Mainly because of the issue of overlapping page elements that were never a problem with HTML4 + Tables.

    Thanks Ray for clarification.
    Do you think v2015 may have REAL facilities now compared to v2013 which has APPARENT facilities?

    To keep it simple, html 5 dynamic is the equivalent of the old html 4.01 with tables and plain ol' html 5 is the equivalent of html 4.01 (sans tables).

    By the way, HTML 5 Dynamic began working flawlessly in my PC. Until last week it gave trouble and I had to use HTML 4.01 with Tables.

    When compared to HTML4, HTML5 has the ability of the web browser to be an application platform by using HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Many elements have been added directly to the language such as article, aside, audio, bdi, canvas, command, data, datalist, details, embed, figcaption, figure, footer, header, hgroup, keygen, mark, meter, nav, output, progress, rp, rt, ruby, section, source, summary, time, track, video, wbr. Another important advantage such as Local Storage : in HTML4, in order to store important data on client side, browser's cache was used. However, that cache is limited and doesn't support relational storage mechanism. In HTML5, this issue has been addressed via Web SQL database and application cache that can be access via HTML5's JavaScript interface. Other advantages like, new input types such as date for which the browser can expose easy user interface , and browser-supported form validation will make developing web applications much simpler for the developers, and make them much faster for the users .
