<p>XHTML2 defines a new vocabulary with features for hyperlinks,
multimedia content, annotating document edits, rich metadata,
declarative interactive forms, and describing the semantics of human
literary works such as poems and scientific papers. <a href=#refsXHTML2>[XHTML2]</a></p>

<p>XForms similarly defines a new vocabulary with features for
complex data entry, such as tax forms or insurance forms.</p>

<p>However, XHTML2 and XForms lack features to express the semantics
of many of the non-document types of content often seen on the
Web. For instance, they are not well-suited for marking up forum
sites, auction sites, search engines, online shops, mapping
applications, e-mail applications, word processors, real-time
strategy games, and the like.</p>

<p><em>This</em> specification aims to extend HTML so that it is
also suitable in these contexts.</p>

<p>XHTML2, XForms, and this specification all use different
namespaces and therefore can all be implemented in the same XML
processor.</p>
