HTML 5 specification (still a work in progress)
December 4, 2007
I had a good read of the new specification for HTML 5 last night. It’s supposed to break us free from the constraints of HTML 4 and the browsers (at least it will allow browser manufacturers to take things one step forwards). HTML 5 introduces a lot of interesting new features such as semantics, API compatibility, improved form controls and more. Some of the simplified mark-up should also make barriers to entry much lower, I also believe that the creators of WYSIWYG tools will find it much easier to create new web based tools to create sites based on HTML 5 due to the simplification of the document.
Rather than write a full review I suggest you go and read the write up from A List Apart here.
