Hello Readers,

Well I hope you'd like the new look of my blog and if you want to suggest any changes you are most welcome.
You can now follow me on my twitter handle.

Well comming to the topic of this post, I would like to say that it is one of my favourite topics.
HTML, we all know about it and most of us know that a new version i.e HTML 5 is here and that is what I am writing about today.

It is basically a language to create structures and present data on World Wide Web. Originally proposed by opera software, is the 5th version of the HTML standard of 1990.
HTML5 is intended to subsume not only HTML 4 , but XHTML 1 and DOM Level 2 HTML as well. It is observed that html and xhtml have different specifications but same work and hence html 5 has born to create such single language that can be written with both html and xhtml syntax. It includes detailed processing models to encourage more interoperable implementations; it also extends, improves and rationalises the markup available for documents, and introduces markup and application programming interfaces (APIs) for complex web applications. For the same reasons, many features of HTML5 are built to run on low powered devices keeping in mind the view of Smartphones and Tablets. In December 2011 research firm Strategy Analytics forecast sales of HTML5 compatible phones will top 1 billion in 2013.

HTML5 has dropped elements of HTML 4.01 that are purely presentational elements such as < font > and < center >, whose effects are achieved using Cascading Style Sheets.
New elements and attributes that reflect typical usage on modern websites . Some of them are semantic replacements for common uses of generic block ( < div > ) and inline ( < span > ) elements, for example < nav > (website navigation block), < footer > (usually referring tobottom of web page or to lastlines of HTML code), or < audio > and < video > instead of < object > have been introduced and more emphasis has been given to DOM SCRIPTING.
Certain new API's have been introduced that a web developer would fall for.

Existing document object model (DOM) interfaces are extended and de facto features documented. There are also new APIs, such as:
~~The canvas element for immediate mode 2D drawing.
~~Timed media playback.
~~Offline Web Applications.
~~Document editing.
~~Cross-document messaging.
~~Browser history management.
~~MIME type and protocol handler registration.
~~Web Storage , a key-value pair storage framework that provides behaviour similar to Cookies but with larger storage capacity and improved API.
Well these features are quite nice and certainly finally after 1997 we, the web developers have something to cheer about.

Well I have already begin to implement HTML 5 in my daily routine have you?
