After my Christmas vacation I found myself with the news of a new version of HTML. After 9 years of HTML 4.01 why do we need now HTML 5? Why not XHTML instead of HTML? I thought than XHTML was the evolution of HTML.
What happens with the presentational or stylistic HTML markup? Do we come back to empty elements and bad coding?
Please, could someone try to explain to me in an easy way this difficult issue?
Thanks a lot,

Can you provide some more resources related to HTML 5? I am working on an offline web application which is based on HTML 5. I require some tutorials or some good examples to learn this feature of HTML 5.

HTML 5 or a specific part of the spec? I was under the impression that HTML 5 wasn't out yet.

I have to provide the offline support to an already existing web application. I have the option of using different APIs like Google Gears or Dojo. As HTML 5 provide support for Offline web application, so there is no need to use these APIs. I heard that IE8 and Firefox 3 has provided support for some of the specifications of HTML 5.

Kapil, Ok. So you aren't really looking for HTML 5 info. You are looking for offline info. I think this blog entry gives a good overview. It's from a year ago, so you'll have to search to find more current details.
