The super short answer is...yes.

HTML is HTML.

5 is just the 5th revision. With the release of HTML5, we go a simplified doc type, and some new tags like

<canvas>.

Other tags were depreciated, or no longer supported like

<strike> 

as those can be handled in CSS better.

I have yet to see them teach us anything that was depreciated in HTML5.

The markup in the videos and coding challenges indicate a HTML5 doc type, so yes.

Ok Thanks a lot Kevin Korte

It doesn't seem like they are using the new HTML5 tags though.

They really haven't taught the HTML 5 tags because they are a lot of base tags to learn first. They will probably do that more in a more advance video I'd imagine.
