Hello,

RDFa is for putting data in HTML documents. You can learn more in the  
primer:

W3C is developing a suite of open technologies for Web Applications.  
The specifications for these technologies include HTML 5, CSS, SVG,  
and a host of others.

I expect that there is overlap between what HTML 5 will offer and what  
other formats, including Flash (SWF) offer.
The HTML WG has published a document that describes some of the  
differences between HTML 4 and 5:

Hope that helps,
