Semantics in HTML 5
HTML 5, the W3C’s recently redoubled effort to shape the next generation of HTML, has, over the last year or so, taken on considerable momentum. It is an enormous project, covering not simply the structure of HTML, but also parsing models, error-handling models, the DOM, algorithms for resource fetching, media content, 2D drawing, data templating, security models, page loading models, client-side data storage, and more. There are also revisions to the structure, syntax, and semantics of HTML, some of which Lachlan Hunt covered in “A Preview of HTML 5.” In this article, let’s turn solely to the semantics of HTML. It’s something the author has been interested in for many years, and something which he believe is fundamentally important to the future of HTML.

Coding Up a Web Design Concept into HTML5
Code a Backwards Compatible, One Page Portfolio with HTML5 and CSS3
HTML5 is the future of web development but believe it or not you can start using it today. HTML5 is much more considerate to semantics and accessibility as we don’t have to throw meaningless div’s everywhere. It introduces meaningful tags for common elements such as navigations and footers which makes much more sense and are more natural. This is a run through of the basics of HTML5 and CSS3 while still paying attention to older browsers. Before we start, make note of the answer to this question.
Coding A HTML 5 Layout From Scratch
While it is true HTML5 and CSS3 are both a work in progress and is going to stay that way for some time, there’s no reason not to start using it right now.

That’s were Progressive Enhancement and Graceful Degradation come into play. There are some good HTML5 examples here.

Building Web Pages With HTML 5
Depending on who you ask, HTML 5 is either the next important step toward creating a more semantic web or a disaster that’s going to trap the web in yet another set of incomplete tags and markup soup. The problem with both sides of the argument is that very few sites are using HTML 5 in the wild, so the theoretical solutions to its perceived problems remain largely untested. That said, it isn’t hard to see both the benefits and potential hang-ups with the next generation of web markup tools.

They have nearly 40 different animations to choose from and everything is done on-line (it honestly takes 1-2 minutes) then you simply copy/paste a simple line of code into your site.
Great tool for those who want to stay clear of plug-ins/download and programming.

If HTML, CSS and browsers mature like this, majority of the standalone desktop applications will swich to HTML based GUI.
A welcome advancement for GUI developers, we dont have to keep track of MFC, Swing and other desktop GUI tools. Just focus on browser based GUI.
Also Software tool development companies can make HTML and CSS be a standard for GUI developement, which may compile into different native GUI.
Some really good stuff here. HTML 5 is definitely something, as an industry, we should be using more of.
Great article, thank you for posting this. After reading your article, I have realized that HTML5 is quite easy. And it also makes things much more neat. I love the links you’ve posted too. As for all the older IE, thats easy – just add the JS. No big deal. Question – do we need to update all our websites that are written in the old HTML to HTML5?
