HTML 5 Please

by Irving A
The article that I read this week was regarding HTML 5 and CSS 3. It provides an answer to the overwhelming task of keeping up with the constant evolving HTML 5 and CSS 3 support. The answer is provided by collaboration from the head of Google Chrome developer relations, Paul Irish, and Web Opener for Opera Software, Divyan Manuan with the website HTML please.  The goal of the website is to recommend when to use HTML 5 or CSS 3.  The recommendations are divided into three groups which are use, use with caution, and avoid.  The results are to make it easy to decide which new elements are safe to use and which of them are still too new for the mainstream.

HTML 5 is a language for creating pages for the World Wide Web. It is a core technology for the internet and the fifth revision of HTML standards. It has been improve so that the language can also be read by humans and understood by computers.  We have been learning about HTML in class, as well as working with it in class exercises as well as projects.

CCS 3 is a style sheet language used to describe the presentation semantics written in HTML.  It is designed primarily to enable the separation of document content between HTML and documents.  It specifies a priority of scheme to determine which style rules apply if more than one rile matches against a particular element. We studied this in class and applied it to class exercises.
