HTML 5 will be web development’s flavour of 2009

Friday, 9 January, 2009

John Allsopp discusses the restricted semantic capability of HTML and how the recent HTML 5 specification, and some of the new elements it introduces, will address these limitations.

I’m going to make a bold prediction. Long after you and I are gone, HTML will still be around. Not just in billions of archived pages from our era, but as a living, breathing entity. Too much effort, energy, and investment has gone into developing the web’s tools, protocols, and platforms for it to be abandoned lightly, if indeed at all.

By the way, for two examples of websites marked up using HTML 5 check out the An Event Apart and UX London websites.
