Anyway, I’ve started to play with the graphic options (i.e <canvas> and <svg>) and I’m impressed. As ever, the trick is not to find yourself saying “… how can I use this new and exciting technology” but rather “what do I want to do” or “what do I already do that could be done better” and then see if HTML 5 has a nice solution for it.
I’ve fooled around with HTML 5 before (see ), hence “Return to …”, but I think it’s really worth getting to know properly. The web is changing, and more than just the Web 2.0 thing of years past. The web will predominantly become multi-device orientated and HTML 4 (and XHTML to a lesser extent) just won’t be enough. HTML 5 (and CSS3) allows access to all the devices out there [you’re optimistic – Ed] so if you learn nothing else, get learning. Here’s a good start: http://www.w3schools.com/html5/default.asp
