"The best thing to do about HTML is nothing."
HTML5: A vocabulary and associated APIs for HTML and XHTML. W3C Candidate Recommendation 17 December 2012
If HTML was a person, it would be almost old enough to drink. Unlike your average 18-year-old, however, HTML has hardly grown at all since it first appeared.
The Compendium is intended as a reference source for users of the HyperText Markup Language. It is not intended to promote or dissuade readers from adhering to any standards or particular implementation of HTML. It is intended to provide a source of information for authors to get valid information on tags, where they came from, what they are supposed to do, and who supports them. Standards are indeed excellent and are necessary for the universality of HTML. However, without those who have pushed the limits, we would not have HTML 4.0 or any other improvements.
