code: HTML 5 is on the cards?!!?

Wasn’t HTML meant to move gracefully over to XHTML so that we had a seperation between:

  • structure (html)
  • design (css, images)
  • layout (css, html)
  • business logic (php, asp, visual n++)?

You know, death of the <font> tag parties and no more bgcolor, tables tables tables etc. Well, HTML is being revived as version 5 by the w3c. I’ve read some of the debates, but I haven’t got the exec summary, please share. Will love to know what will happen to web standards now <sigh></font></blink>
