HTML5 for Web Developers: Why It's Worth Your Time
When asked how HTML5 differs from traditional HTML, Meyer responded that it's still that same HTML--plus more elements. "HTML5 adds new elements for things like sections of a document and articles, and figures and captions for figures. So it covers things that a lot of us do all the time, like create <div class="figure"> and then <p class="caption"> inside of that to go along with an image. Now there's just an element called 'figure' and you insert an image and you have an element after that called 'caption.'"
