    What do you use the most?

    HTML5 is like HTML4 without the head tag, some divs (header, footer, ...) as tag and more.
    We use less characters on HTML5 than HTML4

    Which one do you use the most and which one do you prefer?

    Well, HTML5 is becoming more and more of the standard to use. Might as well get practice into using it and start using it as your own standard to. I tried to be up to date with all of my coding.

    So long as we know XTML, we dont have to worry a lot about HTML, right? ;)

    HTML5 where possible, as it's the new standard. There's also a lot of cool stuff you can do with HTML5 that you can't do with HTML4 which makes it infinitely better. :p

    There's lots of examples, but I'll go through some of the cooler ones:

    • HTML5 has audio support built in, so we can embed audio into our site using the
      Code:
      <audio>
      element.
    • HTML5 also has video support built in using, you guessed it,
      Code:
      <video>
    • You can include regular expressions in forms for validation if you want, using the
      Code:
      pattern
      attribute
    • You can create slider inputs using the
      Code:
      range
      type
    • And lots more
    HTML5 with CSS3 really does make for an awesome combination.

    HTML5 hands down. It's the new standard and it can be used to make some pretty neat websites. I'm kinda excited to see what they have planned for HTML6. Lol

    HTML5 is what you should be using. As a web standard, there should never be any reason to use a previous version of a coding language once the new version is released.

    I think we have enough journey ahead with HTML 5 standards. We managed to get rid of the flash with the HTML 5. I think with more efforts we can get rid of other bad third party standards. So with that we don't need old HTML 4 standard anymore. Though it'd be interesting to see how the old browsers may still support it. I think most of us are now in the HTML 5 for sure.
