    Opinion on HTML 5.0

    "after html upgrades", that is actually quite funny HTML is not like PHP available for download anywhere, it has to be implemented in web browsers like Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera etc.

    It would be a while before it is also used everywhere, why would it break? Change of tags, removing tags?

    EDIT: It would not be good if it breaks since than everything is messed up or something.

    Well, some tags would be added and removed. Not a whole lot, but enough where we'd see some sites breaking if they were forced to validate/render as HTML 5.0.

    What I can see happening is both HTML 4.01 and 5.0 being supported, and being rendered based on the given doctype.

    It wouldn't matter because you set the DOCTYPE, and even then, a depreciated tag will still work, just produce invalid HTML (but the browser will still display it), e.g. like using the FONT tag in a DOCTYPE that renders it outdated.

    Besides, we have a long way to go before HTML5 (and CSS3) are fully supported by browsers. Probably another 5-7 years or so.
