Is this the first HTML6 specification?
I just found this very interesting “project” including an active, but unpopular GitHub repo:
Looks like these highly logical specs are not a joke, they have substance. Just look at this:
Imagine being able to mark something up the way you want to mark it up. Imagine changing <div id="wrapper"> to <wrapper> ...
The rest of the specs is interesting, but does not bring massive changes. The “namespace”-like syntax looks good at first view, but i cannot see a real advantage compared to HTML4/5 here, but look for yourself:
HTML6 is conceptually HTML with XML like namespaces. <!DOCTYPE html> <html:html> <html:head> <html:title>HTML6 Spec Version 0.1</html:title> <html:meta type="description" value="... HTML with namespaces"> </html:head> </html:html>
<!DOCTYPE html> <html:html> <html:head> <html:title>HTML6 Spec Version 0.1</html:title> </html:head> <html:body> <form:form method="post" action="/sendmail"> <!-- Simple input (defaults to text) --> <form:input> <!-- A new HTML6 match example --> <form:input type="password" name="user_password"> <form:input type="password" match="user_password"> <!-- Advanced example --> <form:input type="email" placeholder="firstname.lastname@example.org" autofocus required> </form:form> </html:body> </html:html>
This projects exists since 2012, but hasn’t got big attention yet, only 50+ stars on GitHub. I’ll do some research on this in the next days and how this is related to the official development of HTML6. Hmmm, let’s have an eye on that, maybe it’s the real thing.
