About this book


Markup is synonymous with the development of the web, but most people only scratch the surface of its capabilities. Why settle for average HTML, when you can become an HTML5 master?

That’s where this unique book comes in. It’s aimed at web designers and developers who want to take their markup even further in the exciting new directions the web has taken in multimedia, interactivity and improved semantics. HTML5 isn't for just any web site, but for a web site that will contribute to tomorrow’s “web of data.”

HTML5 Mastery will introduce the new markup elements of HTML5—including less commonly used ones—and show you where and how to use them. It also provides clever styling and scripting techniques that you can employ on your web site. It is completely standards-compliant, and up-to-date with modern web design techniques.
