Essentially the same list, but referencing HTML 4.01:

http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/index/elements.html


It is exactly the same list at present, and
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/index/elements.html
is normally the preferable URL, since it points to the newest version of
HTML 4 (see the start of http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/cover.html ).

Not a big difference in practice (since there most probably will be no
newer version or even typo-fixed edition of HTML 4, unfortunately), but
in general, when referring to W3C recommendations, it is usually best to
use the URLs announced as referring to "The latest version of...".

On the other hand, the list does not contain all HTML codes and their
effects. There is no list _covering_ that area. If anyone started
composing it now, it would be out of date when ready.

When people ask for "all HTML codes", they want all codes very loosely
speaking - anything that browsers might react to. This is a moving target
(though not as fast as it used to be). The best - and, actually, these
days, the only one I know - attempt at describing _most_ of the HTML
codes actually used and their effects on the most common browsers is
http://www.blooberry.com/indexdot/html

And if you want to know what works in the majority of browsing
situations, you also look at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/a...e/elements.asp
and try to remember that the documentation contains factual mistakes
(i.e., describes IE behavior wrong), though not many.

But isn't 4.01 more recent than 4?

"This document specifies HTML 4.01, which is part of the HTML 4 line of
specifications. The first version of HTML 4 was HTML 4.0 [HTML40],
published on 18 December 1997 and revised 24 April 1998. This
specification is the first HTML 4.01 Recommendation. It includes
non-editorial changes since the 24 April version of HTML 4.0. There have
been some changes to the DTDs, for example. This document obsoletes
previous versions of HTML 4.0, although W3C will continue to make those
specifications and their DTDs available at the W3C Web site."

"W3C recommends that user agents and authors (and in particular, authoring
tools) produce HTML 4.01 documents rather than HTML 4.0 documents."

HTML 4.01 is more recent than HTML 4.0, yes, but
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/ points to the latest HTML 4.x, i.e. 4.01.

Yes it does, but http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/index/elements.html points to
what it looks like, HTML 4. As the cover page reads Latest version of HTML
4.01: http://www.w3.org/TR/html401", one would naturally assume the most
up-to-date document would be that one.

I guess my question is whether there is ANY difference in the specs at
these two URLs.
