HTML5 and CSS3 have swept the web by storm in only 2 years.

Changes Between HTML4 And HTML5
You may be wondering why it’s even important to switch into HTML5. There are a myriad of reasons, but mostly because you’ll be working with the global Internet standards like every other designer. In this way you’ll find more support online and your websites will render properly in modern browsers which are constantly improved.
Comparison between HTML4 and HTML5 is difficult to spot at surface level. From viewing the new HTML5 draft you can see featured elements and corrected error handling procedures. Browser developers have specifically enjoyed the new specifications for rendering default web pages.
Additionally many elements have been created to represent new-age digital media. These include <video> and <audio> which are huge for multimedia support. In some browsers you may complete form validation directly in HTML. Granted there is still a heavy need for jQuery, since there are many software developers who have yet to recognize the features.
