There is no difference between HTML5 and HTML.

HTML5 is just a newer Standard of the HTML Mark-Up Language. HTML5 deprecates some things like <marquee> and implements some newer stuff like <video>. Again, HTML5 is just a Standard Update to the HTML Language. Not much has changed except for how things should be laid out, new Features etc.

Yep, pretty much. The only thing to consider is that some older browsers or custom HTML interpreters may not be accustomed to HTML5 standards and not work properly. However, all of the major browsers are equipped to handle the changes. HTML5 is just HTML with additional changes... the same ways Windows 10 is just Windows and Windows XP is just a version of Windows. There are changes that require developers to understand the new features & deprecated old features, but it's still the "same" in many ways. Of course, HTML25 (in years from now) may be drastically different than HTML5, but it is still just another version of HTML.

Ah, yeah. I always forget about Deprecated-Technologies. Of course, older Browsers that have ceased production(E.g. Netscape) or just rarely get Updates will mean that the Browser won't be compatible with the HTML5 Standard until it gets an Update.

And as @Ghost said. If you were to look at Windows, Windows 10 is just Windows(But the final Version) and XP, 7 or Vista are just previous Versions of the OS. These Updates to Windows bring new changes, new looks, new tweaks, new Features and better performance. The same applies to HTML5. It brought new Features and deprecated Technologies that were no longer in use or were rarely used at all.

And every time an Update to Windows, MacOS, HTML5, Google Chrome and a bunch of other Software and Languages is that Developers need to learn the new APIs and new Tools before they can get their Product that's compliant with the newer Version, onto the Market.

But for HTML25, that will be released sometime between the 22nd and 25th Century. The reason for this is because......Just look at the timeline for HTML between HTML4/4.01 and HTML5 and then you'll get the idea.
