HTML (hyper text mark-up language) was designed in 1990, primarily, to provide a language for describing information as elements, known as tags; < img >, which can be read by a browser and displayed as a page of visible and audible content. HTML5 was published in 2008 and is currently the most recent variation of the HTMLanguage for the web.
The website beta.theexpressiveweb.com
was created by Adobe to showcase some of the features of html5 that were previously unavailable to the web. Many of these new features show some form of interactivity that can be included into web pages.
Keyframe animation (same method as in Flash) can be added to HTML content. The animations can be made with interactive elements that will have various outcomes.

HTML5 allows embedding of videos directly into a webpage which allows the video to fit in and be layered into the format of the page.
