The WHATWG one is more stable than HTML4 (as in, it's more precise, more 
accurate, and will need less change over time to reach its ideal state). 

And it's a standard, it says so at the top. :-)

(The W3C version is technically _less_ stable than the WHATWG one, since 
it has more changes made to it than the WHATWG one.)
