== HTML 5 ==

URL: http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/

HTML 5 defines a kaboodle of new elements and attributes, as well as
some well-defined, "quirks mode" HTML parsing.  Although WHATWG professes
to be targeted towards web applications, many of their semantic additions
would be quite useful in regular documents. Eventually, HTML
Purifier will need to audit their lists and figure out what changes need
to be made.  This process is complicated by the fact that the WHATWG
doesn't buy into W3C's modularization of XHTML 1.1: we may need
to remodularize HTML 5 (probably done by section name). No sense in
committing ourselves till the spec stabilizes, though.

More immediately speaking though, however, is the well-defined parsing
behavior that HTML 5 adds. While I have little interest in writing
another DirectLex parser, other parsers like ph5p 
<http://jero.net/lab/ph5p/> can be adapted to DOMLex to support much more
flexible HTML parsing (a cool feature I've seen is how they resolve
<b>bold<i>both</b>italic</i>).
