Fantastic news for web designers and developers today!
W3C has just announced the HTML 5 Logo giving the specification a striking visual identity for the open web platform. That’s what all of us were waiting for, isn’t it true? I know we were.
What is HTML 5 you may be asking?
Here’s what W3C says about HTMl 5:
HTML5 is the cornerstone of the W3C’s open web platform; a framework designed to support innovation and foster the full potential the web has to offer. Heralding this revolutionary collection of tools and standards, the HTML5 identity system provides the visual vocabulary to clearly classify and communicate our collective efforts.
HTML 5 is not yet fully implemented as it depends on the web browser’s support and as you know the browser support for new specifications varies from browser to browser.
Giving meaning to structure, semantics are front and center with HTML5. A richer set of tags, along with RDFa, microdata, and microformats, are enabling a more useful, data driven web for both programs and your users.
There has been a lot pf buzz around HTML 5 lately, especially from Apple, and you probably connect HTML 5 with audio/video features in the new specification.
