still in development and will be for a while. But one cool thing is now they have <video> and tags so its way easier to include media without having to do all that <embed > crap.

Check this out http://www.youtube.com....

You'll have to have a browser that supports it though, meaning either Firefox 3.5 or Safari 4 and maybe some others I'm not aware of that support some aspects of html5.

The other big thing about it is that now it'll support client-side caching, so you'll have better offline browsing capabilities.

There are downsides to it though. For one, the video and audio tags only support OGG media files. That's about all i can remember now

There are a bunch of cool little demos around on the net that'll show you some of whats coming

Not true. However, it is true that certain people want the standard to push browsers to support at least OGG and OGG theora, those people sadly had a slight loss.

What HTML5 used to say:
User agents should support Ogg Theora video and Ogg Vorbis audio, as well as the Ogg container format.

What HTML5 says now:
It would be helpful for interoperability if all browsers could support the same codecs. However, there are no known codecs that satisfy all the current players: we need a codec that is known to not require per-unit or per-distributor licensing, that is compatible with the open source development model, that is of sufficient quality as to be usable, and that is not an additional submarine patent risk for large companies. This is an ongoing issue and this section will be updated once more information is available.
