II. HTML Markup for Structure > 10. What’s Up, HTML5?

Chapter 10. What’s Up, HTML5?

We’ve been using HTML5 elements in the past several chapters, but there is a lot more to the HTML5 specification than new markup possibilities (although that is an important part). HTML5 is actually a bundle of new methods for accomplishing tasks that previously required special programming or proprietary plug-in technology such as Flash or Silverlight. It offers a standardized, open source way to put audio, video, and interactive elements on the page as well as the ability to store data locally, work offline, take advantage of location information, and more. With HTML5 for common tasks, developers can rely on built-in browser capabilities and not need to reinvent the wheel for every application.
