HTML is currently defined in multiple documents, each purporting to be
*THE*definition of HTML/HTML5. The documents are developed, published
maintained by 2 separate organisations. The 2 organisations have differing
development models, one (W3C) employs a consensus
resolving conflicts about the normative and informative content of the
HTML specification, in the other (WHATWG) all decisions about what is in the
specification are made by one
editor, Ian Hickson).
