- Getting ready for HTML5
- Getting ready for HTML5- New tags, part one
- Getting ready for HTML5- The video tag...
- Getting ready for HTML5- New tags, part two
- Getting ready for HTML5- Browser support...
- Getting ready for HTML5- New tags, part three
- Getting ready for HTML5- Which tags have been dropped?
- I'll be getting rid of all occurrences of <center>, <font>, etc. and make sure that I only use tags that are supported by HTML5. Obviously, I'll be using more CSS, but it'll become a habit for me sooner rather than later.
- This blog will finally be using video that can be enjoyed without Flash. (Cough, cough, iPhone... Cough, cough, iPad...) What I'll do for videos in this blog for now on is that I'll use the new <video> tag. In between <video> and </video> is where the code goes for browsers without <video> tag support. In THAT space, I'll embed Flash. That way, if visitors have support for EITHER Flash or the <video> tag, they'll be able to enjoy video in my postings from October 8th, on.
- I can finally slap <!DOCTYPE html5> on the top of all of my webpages in kimcrawley.com and buchalterconsulting.ca. Newer browsers will no longer be forced to run QuirksMode, and I can submit them to html5gallery.com and html5websites.net. More importantly, I can validate the webpages on both sites through W3C's Markup Validation Service.
