In the first major update to the web's primary mark-up language in 10 years, the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) HTML 5 promises to revolutionise the way designers create sites, and the way viewers interact with them. The new proposals feature an array of new integrated functions, including new video and audio commands, and a range of benefits for designers looking to bring interactivity and rich internet functions to sites without the need for heavy coding. HTML 5 focuses largely on web applications, something not adequately catered for in previous versions, which means integration into Wordpress sites and elements from applications such as Twitter and Facebook can be more easily controlled. However, because the specification is still some way from total completion, there's no immediate threat to current rich internet application (RIA) formats such as Flash and Silverlight.
HTML5 support will be available everywhere on the web - even on mobile devices. HTML5 is currently making very slow progress towards formal support and certification by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which oversees web standards. The final version is due... in 2022, by which time it will almost certainly be obsolete. In the meantime, coding standards and features may not be completely stable - but this doesn't mean you should wait until its features are frozen. The best time to start learning and using HTML5 is now. Some browsers, like Firefox and Safari , already support some of the features.
If you haven’t heard, HTML5 is taking the web by storm! It is currently being enhanced by experts to provide us Web Designers & Developers with awesome new revolutionary web page features! HTML5 Background Information For those of you who are new to HTML5, here is some quick background information to get you up to speed. HTML5 is the new language for presenting content on the Internet (at the time of writing this article it is still in beta but soon to be released in 2012).
A group of Italian developers has just released a free and open-source framework for creating e-books for the iPad . The Baker E-book Framework allows designers and developers to turn fixed-width HTML5 pages into an e-book format and publish the finished product. After that, all you need to do is follow the App Store submission guidelines, and you’re on your way to e-book greatness. To design for the Baker Framework, simply build HTML5 pages with a fixed width of 768 pixels. You can test your HTML versions on an iPad using the Safari browser and iterate accordingly.
Some have embraced it , some have discarded it as too far in the future, and some have abandoned a misused friend in favor of an old flame in preparation. Whatever side of the debate you’re on, you’ve most likely heard all the blogging chatter surrounding the “new hotness” that is HTML5 . It’s everywhere, it’s coming, and you want to know everything you can before it’s old news. Things like jQuery plugins, formatting techniques, and design trends change very quickly throughout the Web community.
The web is changing. Now that all modern desktop and mobile browsers support HTML5 and Adobe has discontinued Flash for mobile browsers, it’s time to think about which delivery method to choose – and certainly for mobile platforms, HTML5 is the best option for interactive content. Hype ( available from the Mac App Store ) creates animated and interactive HTML5 content, without requiring you to write a single line of code. In this tutorial , we’re going to create an animated HTML5 banner using Hype’s simple, yet powerful, scene editor and keyframe-based animation system. By the end, you’ll know how to build and animate a scene, and how to respond to scene and user events.
Please note aside has been redefined since this post was written, please read the updated article . HTML 5 offers a new element to mark additional information that can enhance an article but isn’t necessarily key to understanding it. However, in the interpretation of <aside> there lies confusion as to how it can be used, and with that there is demand for the Doctor to step up and clear the air.
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.
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.
