HTML 5 and CSS in Safari{1}


by Chaoxi P

With Safari 4’s improved history search, Top Sites and controversial tabbed windows features garnering much of the attention, users have largely overlooked support for HTML 5 introduced in the public beta of the next version of Apple’s Web browser. The most exciting thing that is HTML 5 offers support for audio and video tags, giving developers an easier way to bring them into Web sites. Apple promises support for HTML 5 media tags among other next-generation Web standards in Safari 4.Apple also used CSS 3—the Cascading Style Sheets used by Web developers for Web site presentation—to add reflections and gradients to the page. CSS3 which can be combined with structural markup language like HTML, XHTML, or XML (though not limited to these), CSS provide Internet browsers with the information that enables them to present all the visual aspects and elements of a web document. CSS apply things like borders, spacing between paragraphs, margins, headings Base etc.  Therefore, Safari support the features in HTML 5 and CSS 3 would be nice.                                                                        

Related to our class, we pratice to creat the Cascading Style Sheets combine with HTML which is very cool and convenience, even it is complicated for us to first time use. However, I believe it will quite convenience and nice to modeling  HTML 5 website. Commonly referred to as CSS, is a simple design language intended to simplify the process of making web pages presentable. Put simply, CSS handles the look and feel part of a web page or a whole website, like our exercise in class.  Wecontrol the color of the text, the style of fonts, the spacing between paragraphs, how columns are sized and laid out, as well as other effects and styles. Besides that, we can determine which styles to apply to a specific part or whole page.
