Seems so. Is there a concern here?

Or perhaps "Changes, News Features, and Fixes from HTML4" ? (/me is
looking at GCC release note)


  * Differences of W3C HTML5/WHATWG HTML from HTML4
  * Differences of WHATWG HTML/W3C HTML5 from HTML4
  * HTML5 differences from HTML4 (the W3C title)

Anyway, I agree that "HTML differences from HTML4" sounds confusing and
any of the above is better.
