I'm also a little confused. There was a recent announcement [1] from the
WHATWG that the version number was being dropped from HTML 5. This has been
reported elsewhere, usually directly referring back to the WHATWG
announcement [2].

Obviously this doesn't seem to fit with the smacking great "5" in the new
logo. For the record I think it looks great, there just seems to be a bit of
confusion around it at the moment.
