World Wide Web Consortium Presents Plan 2014 for HTML 5

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which manages specifications used on the Internet, has issued a new report on the progress of HTML 5, according to Techspot.

While W3C had originally projected a timeline for implementation as late as 2022, the date is now placed more optimistically at 2014. The consortium's revised Plan 2014 now aims for HTML 5.0 Candidate Recommendation to be submitted by the end of 2012 and finalized in 2014. This version, placing greater emphasis on modularity, will include only stable features that can be used in real world browsers. 

Those areas of HTML5 that remain unstable or contain interoperability problems will be addressed in working toward HTML 5.1, targeted for standardization in 2016.
