HTML5 vs WordPress: What are the differences?
Developers describe HTML5 as "5th major revision of the core language of the World Wide Web". HTML5 is a core technology markup language of the Internet used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web. As of October 2014 this is the final and complete fifth revision of the HTML standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The previous version, HTML 4, was standardised in 1997. On the other hand, WordPress is detailed as "A semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability". The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home” — we’d love you to join the family.
HTML5 belongs to "Languages" category of the tech stack, while WordPress can be primarily classified under "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS".
"New doctype", "Local storage" and "Canvas" are the key factors why developers consider HTML5; whereas "Customizable", "Easy to manage" and "Plugins & themes" are the primary reasons why WordPress is favored.
WordPress is an open source tool with 12.6K GitHub stars and 7.69K GitHub forks. Here's a link to WordPress's open source repository on GitHub.
Stack Exchange, ebay, and LinkedIn are some of the popular companies that use WordPress, whereas HTML5 is used by reddit, Lyft, and StackShare. WordPress has a broader approval, being mentioned in 5305 company stacks & 1389 developers stacks; compared to HTML5, which is listed in 3170 company stacks and 3491 developer stacks.

Wordpress is extremely easy to learn and implement. Although is it not as sexy for devs to work with it is by far the most cost effective way to get a dynamic website up and running with very little debugging.

I use WordPress to develop easy-to-maintain, dynamic sites for clients and at my job at KHM Travel Group. I also used WordPress to develop personal/project sites while at Bowling Green State University.
All of our responsive wireframes that are used to build the front end of our clients' sites are built with HTML 5, so we can ensure the most efficient and up to date experience for their customers.
Wordpress is used for our blog and some of our content & landing pages, runs on a subdomain. We also use a custom Python proxy to bring in blog content to the primary domain (/blog).
I use word press when I need to deliver static websites in super short time. It’s easy, fast and can be used to create amazing single page sites for small to medium sized companies..
We exclusively use HTML5 instead of XHTML (or even older) HTML-versions. We like the new unity that HTML5 offers and try to keep our code according to the conventions.
