    Hi All,

     HTML5 is much smarter, so its need simple syntax to specify it, Few of them are below:

    • Quotes are optional for attributes.
    • Uppercase tag names.
    • Closing empty elements are optional.
    • Attribute values are optional.


    DOCTYPE  -

    In the older version of HTML, we need to write a long like to declare DOCTYPE because HTML is SGML(Standard Generalized Markup Language) based so its need a DTD (document type definition).

    <!DOCTYPE html>

    In HTML5 we need to explain the content type, html5 has dropped this feature. In earlier, it was needed to explain like script and link(stylesheet)

    <script type="text/javascript" src="script.js"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">

    and now below will work for you.


    <script src="script.js"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
