A markup language is a modern system for annotating a document in a way that is syntactically distinguishable from the text. A widely used markup language is HyperText Markup Language (HTML), one of the document formats of the World Wide Web. The Hypertext Markup Language is the main markup language for displaying web pages and other information that can be displayed in a web browser. It is written in the form of HTML elements consisting of tags, within the web page content. HTML elements form the building blocks of all websites. The paper discusses the new revision of HTML called HTML5, which is a new specification developed to satisfy the various requirements that the previous version HTML4 could not fulfill. A JAVA based web browser (named J.A.W.S) featuring HTML5 developed by the authors along with other web browsers are tested to detail the difference when using the new specification.
