It appears that the recent Web 2.0 craze is really catching on and standard HTML pages are becoming a thing of the past. Many people are creating their web pages via blog software such as wordpress and/or utilizing CMS software such as Moodle/Joomla/Drupal, etc. These software packages are free and easy to set up. They only require programming experience if you want to change their interface or modify them. Otherwise, they are stand alone packages that any user can set up. Many sites are converting to these applications because they allow for more interaction, are easy to set up, and very easy to edit and maintain. So is HTML dead? Not right now but its use as a stand alone web language is declining dramatically.
