html 5 roundup

HTML 5 is the next major revision of the core markup language of the World Wide Web, HTML (hypertext markup language). Its first draft appeared on January 22, 2008.
HTML 5 specifies two variants of the same language, a “classic” HTML (text/html) variant known as HTML5 and an XHTML variant known as XHTML5. This is the first time that HTML and XHTML have been developed in parallel. HTML 5 is said to become a game-changer in Web application development, one that might even make obsolete such plug-in-based rich Internet application (RIA) technologies as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and Sun JavaFX. – wikipedia

I was just starting to explore HTML5 and try to dig it deeply as I could. And the way I learn things is going backward, so I started my exploration by finding working sites using HTML 5 markup and hit Ctrl+u in my keyboard and explore the code. I listed here the sites that i can found hoping that it could also be useful for you as well. HTML 5 Demo

    Good post, but according to a post on which i believe to be correct, the next version of XHTML would have been XHTML2 which has stopped development in favor of HTML5 but apparently you can use closing singleton tags in HTML5 making it XML compliant as XHTML is and XHTML2 would have been.

    I noticed that most of those sites only use HTML 5 to reduce length of DOCTYPE. Mostly, this is due to the fact that HTML5 is mostly not supported in modern browsers. Yet.

    Idea Foundry is a great site, good example of clean site design.

    HTML5 has already got rave reviews from different sources but I am finding it really difficult to get the hang of it.
