HTML Standards Database

Support Tables: Versions, Organizations and Standards

In this database, each table begins with an "ID" column which is the primary key. References to this key in other tables (as a foreign key) are set to "0" (the primary keys begin at "1") when there is no available reference. Examples: Berners-Lee's original "HTML Tags" document has no standards organization; WHATWG's Living HTML does not refer to a particular HTML version.

Work has stopped on all documents except Living HTML. These should not change. Work is continuing on Living HTML and W3C's updates and corrections work is scheduled for HTML 5.1. Living HTML was in synch with HTML 5 (in March, 2012 both documents shared a single section 4, defining tags and attributes) but the two groups have since separated and differences are starting to appear.
