· Web Dev Zone

Start coding today to experience the powerful engine that drives data application’s development, brought to you in partnership with Qlik.

W3C has published an early draft of HTML 5, a major revision of the markup language aimed at rich web content and web applications 10 months after it formed the HTML working group.

It’s the first update of the key standard in 10 years and embraces the relatively newfangled AJAX.

There are new APIs for embedding and controlling audio and video content, maintaining persistent client-side storage and editing documents or parts of documents interactively.

One writes to HTML using either a classic HTML or XML syntax.

For the working draft see http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-html5-20080122/ and for the differences between HTLM 4 ands HTML 5, see http://www.w3.org /TR/2008/WD-html5-diff-20080122/.
