HTML5 examples can be really good inspiration for anyone starting a new web project, after all it is the future of web page markup and we all need to prepare for it. HTML5 is being developed as the next major revision of HTML (HyperText Markup Language). The major market and Internet leaders are already switching to the HTML 5 platform. With Apple and Google both pushing the standards in order to facilitate more advanced web development, we now see HTML 5 implementations popping up all over the place as more companies get on board with the advanced features. With the constant drop of Flash usage in web and Internet applications, HTML5 is opening new doors to web designers and developers.

html5shim - HTML5 IE enabling script Dual licensed under the MIT or GPL Version 2 licenses Full original, uncompressed source available here: https://github.com/aFarkas/html5shiv Source code adds new HTML5 elements (which is simple code), but also supports printing HTML5 elements and includes the default styles for HTML5 elements, like block on article and section.

7 Jan Since HTML5 is getting more attention by way of marking up our new pages, and the only way to get IE to acknowledge the new elements, such as <article>, is to use the HTML5 shiv, I’ve quickly put together a mini script that enables all the new elements. Download html5shiv.js and must be inserted in the head element (this is because IE needs to know about the element before it comes to render them – so it can’t sit in the footer of the page, i.e. below the elements in question). I’ve updated this post to link to Alexander Farkas’s version of the shiv – it’s the very latest and my simple one line script.

This document is a strict subset of the full HTML5 specification that omits user-agent (UA) implementation details. It is targeted toward Web authors and others who are not UA implementors and who want a view of the HTML specification that focuses more precisely on details relevant to using the HTML language to create Web documents and Web applications. Because this document does not provide implementation conformance criteria, UA implementors should not rely on it, but should instead refer to the full HTML5 specification.
