You can do XHTML5 too...
Potted history, probably riddled with inaccuracies, but I think this about covers it:
As an addendum to my last point: you could embed HTML5 in XHTML if you were (as I put it) pandering to your XHTML sensibilities by closing tags and wrapping attributes properly -- so long as you weren't using any of the new tags.
HTML5 has no moral superiority over XHTML, in many ways it's the other way around, HTML5 is just a pragmatic and forward thinking approach to marking up web-based documents.
The thing I like about HTML5 is that it's more overtly focussed on the web (---) and gives more semantically meaningful elements
It's interesting - I prefer XHTML syntax as it's easier to see how tags are nested and forces you to be more diligent in that regard with closing off tags etc.The thing I like about HTML5 is that it's more overtly focussed on the web (as opposed to trying to be a more abstract markup language for any occasion) and gives more semantically meaningful elements to use, but it will be interesting to see how the notion of the "web" evolves with new devices hitting the market, and whether that opens up new semantic contexts and requirements.
I'm just hoping designers don't get too fond of marking up documents with caps lock on. Shudder.
