The difference between HTML and HTML5 is same as the difference between ASP.NET 1.1 and ASP.NET 4.0.
Well, concisely speaking, it's just an updated version of HTML, bundled with some new tags. The most important and perhaps most welcomed enhancement in HTML5 is better support for media (video and audio tags). It's the 5th major revision of HTML, so the name HTML5.
For more information about the difference between HTML (HTML4 actually) and HTML5, you can see the "W3C WORKING DRAFT" here:

For the list of new elements added with HTML5, refer to w3school:

Hope it'll help you.

Basically HTML5 is next version of HTML, HTML% is the combination of older HTML elements and better support for media such as, an audio and video tag.

HTML5 contains some new element, her
1. The Figure Element : used to show image in form
here is small example

<img src="Path" alt="Test image" />
<p>image text. </p>


2. Email as new input control
which will allow you to enter email id and validate it according to email standards.

<input id="eID1" name="email" type="email" />


3. Placeholders
It's a attribute of email tag which will show us blur text in textbox. That will help user to understand the input in email textbox

<input name="email" type="email" placeholder="" />

HTML is the core language of the World Wide Web.HTML5 is the fifth major revision of HTML.

HTML is used to build static webpages.
HTML is Case-Insensitive

HTML5 is defined in a way that it is backwards compatible with the way user agents handle deployed content.
HTML5 has separate conformance requirements for authors and user agents there is no longer a need for marking features "deprecated".
