1. Hacking the Semantic Way

Chapter 1. Hacking the Semantic Way

The spirit of HTML5 is simplicity. HTML5 has made it easy to implement web standards that in the past have been difficult to implement. Instead of trying to reinvent the Web, visionary consortiums such as the WHATWG (Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group) and the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) looked at the web standards that had evolved and built upon them.

In essence, HTML5 is primarily an update to the HyperText Markup Language (HTML). In this chapter we will start with the basic building blocks of HTML, the semantic elements, to provide a foundation for the simple yet powerful new web browser technologies exposed within this book.

So, open up your favorite code editor, brew a pot of coffee, and get ready to code in the most powerful language the Web has ever seen: HTML5!
