      Description

      WebAssembly: The target architecture, similar to x86 or ARM. Also a marketing term where "for WebAssembly" means deployed on the web targetting web browsers.

      Emscripten: This is the SDK, which provides the C++ toolchain and runtime, as well as C++ wrappers for the HTML5 API.

      HTML5: This is the platform target, similar to macOS or Windows. The QtGui platform plugin especially will make use of HTML5 features.

      Current naming in Qt:

      Project Name: Qt for WebAssembly
      Jira platform/epic: webassembly
      Platform plugin: html5/
      Platform plugin class prefix: Qhtml5
      Platform define Q_OS_HTML5
      .pro files: html5
      mkspec name: emscripten

      Should we change any of these before it's too late?
