Someone is trying to tell me that the spec for HTML 5 is about to be
finalized. Can someone verify this? I didn't think there was any version
5!!!

I don't believe there is any work being done on HTML anymore. The next HTML
will be XHTML.

There will never be a HTML 5. HTML 4.0 begat HTML 4.01, which begat XHTML
1.0.

No, there will never be a HTML version 5. The successor of HTML
4.0x is XHTML 1.0 with XHTML 1.1 to be finalized soon.
