A vocabulary and associated APIs for HTML and XHTML Editor's Draft 26 March 2013 Latest Published Version:
XHTML 2 is dead, long live HTML 5! According to W3C News Archive, XHTML 2 working group is expected to stop work end of 2009 and W3C is planning to increase resources on HTML 5 instead. And even although HTML 5 won’t be completely supported until 2022 , it doesn’t mean that it won’t be widely adopted within the foreseeable future. So in the spirit of the upcoming change we decided to release a handy printable HTML 5 Cheat Sheet that lists all currently supported tags, their descriptions, their attributes and their support in HTML 4. Please notice that the specification is an ongoing work, and is expected to remain so for many years, although parts of HTML 5 are going to be finished and implemented in browsers before the whole specification reaches final Recommendation status. We’ll do our best to update the cheat sheet when new changes will become known.
Ensuring HTML5 drag and drop events can be activated by keyboard-only users Hi everyone, At last week's teleconference, Rich suggested that I follow-up with an email to this group outlining what is required to make drag and drop accessible with HTML5. As I mentioned last week, event names are defined in a device independent way in the HTML specification, so should be able to be made accessible to keyboard only users. The HTML5 drag and drop mechanism defines seven events: * dragstart (initiate the drag and drop operation) * drag (continue drag and drop operation) * dragenter (determine if accepted) * dragleave (leaving a target) * dragover (provide feedback to user) * drop (complete the operation) * dragend (tidy up) These events cannot currently be activated using the keyboard alone in user agents.
HTML 5 is the upcoming major revision of the HyperText Markup Language (HTML), the main method of marking up content for sharing on the World Wide Web. HTML's development stopped at HTML 4.01 in 1999, and since then web content has evolved so much that current HTML specifications are inadequate for today's requirements. HTML 5 aims to improve HTML's interoperability and address the growing demand for more diverse and complex web content. It also addresses HTML 4's lacking features for web applications. In this post, we'll look at 5 exciting new features in HTML 5 . This is a guest post by Jacob Gube , a web developer/designer and author of Six Revisions , a blog on web development and design.
HTML 5 may be the latest and greatest technology, but some browsers don’t have native support for the new semantic elements. Let’s momentarily forget about the really sexy functionality, like full control over the <video> element , and just focus on getting the elements rendered. The problematic A-grade browsers include IE 8 and below, Firefox 2, and Camino 1 (these last two browsers both use the Gecko rendering engine, which is why they’re both affected).
HTML5 and CSS3 have just arrived (kinda), and with them a whole new battle for the ‘best markup’ trophy has begun. Truth to be told, all these technologies are mere tools waiting for a skilled developer to work on the right project. As developers we shouldn’t get into pointless discussions of which markup is the best. They all lead to nowhere. Rather, we must get a brand new ideology and modify our coding habits to keep the web accessible. 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 .
For a long time now my answer to people who ask me if they should use HTML or XHTML has been that it doesn’t really matter as long as you use a Strict DOCTYPE and not a Transitional one. If you’re not sure why , my article Transitional vs. Strict Markup for last year’s 24 ways is a good start.
