The W3C believes that the HTML5 specification has reached the point where it’s time for others in the industry to express support, or criticism. HTML5’s status is now at the “last call” point in the journey to becoming a full spec.
HTML, the Hypertext Markup Language, is used to create web pages and now, applications. The W3C stated that “In practice, last call announcements generate comments that sometimes result in substantive changes to a document.”
Tim Berners-Lee, founder of the web as we know it, and current director of the W3C, said the spec is now ready for comment, announcing that “We now invite new voices to let us know whether these specifications address a broad set of needs.”
