html 5 is "supposed" to be an open standard
At least that is the worn out promise. I can state the major browsers are coming closer to convergence with their latests versions; at least they try to render the same html similar to each other. Whether this "compatibility" remains for HTML is anyone's guess. Apple, Google, and Microsoft are all fighting for customers so time will tell. As to the original question. You have to use the right tool for the particular job as it is defined. Don't use the handle of a screw driver to hammer in a nail; it will be painfully slow.
