HTML5 Doctor, helping you implement HTML5 today
I have to be honest with you: I feel like a fraud writing about JavaScript for HTML5 Doctor.

A Beginner's Guide: Stepping Into Web Design Industry Perhaps you've got some experience in the web industry but unsure what to do next.

Capturing Audio & Video in HTML5 Many browsers now have the ability to access video and audio input from the user. However, depending on the browser it might be a full dynamic and inline experience, or it could be delegated to another app on the user's device. On top of that, not every device even has a camera. So how can you create an experience that uses a user generated image that works well everywhere?

color gradient generator At first, I was using the hexagonal color-cube in WORD to create gradients, but that didn't have the resolution nor flexibility that I wanted. This PHP app takes 3 input parameters: beginning color, ending color, and the number of steps requested and interpolates between them. Step 0 is always the beginning color, and step n is the ending color. theory of operation HTML5 Reference It is useful to make a distinction between the vocabulary of an HTML document—the elements and attributes, and their meanings—and the syntax in which it is written. HTML has a defined set of elements and attributes which can be used in a document; each designed for a specific purpose with their own meaning. Consider this set of elements to be analogous to the list of words in a dictionary. This includes elements for headings, paragraphs, lists, tables, links, form controls and many other features. This is the vocabulary of HTML.

The Edge of HTML5 The Edge of HTML5 Eric Bidelman · Legend: Not quite ready. Keep it on your radar. Relevant Chrome/WebKit bug. CSS Tools: Reset CSS The goal of a reset stylesheet is to reduce browser inconsistencies in things like default line heights, margins and font sizes of headings, and so on. The general reasoning behind this was discussed in a May 2007 post, if you're interested. Reset styles quite often appear in CSS frameworks, and the original "meyerweb reset" found its way into Blueprint, among others. The reset styles given here are intentionally very generic. There isn't any default color or background set for the body element, for example. I don't particularly recommend that you just use this in its unaltered state in your own projects.

A Simple Trip Meter using the Geolocation API Introduction The Geolocation API lets you find out where the user is and keep tabs on them as they move around, always with the user's consent. This functionality could be used as part of user queries, e.g. to guide someone to a destination point. It could also be used for "geo-tagging" some content the user has created, e.g. to mark where a photo was taken. The API is device-agnostic; it doesn't care how the browser determines location, so long as clients can request and receive location data in a standard way. The underlying mechanism might be via GPS, wifi, or simply asking the user to enter their location manually.
