Getting Started: Transitioning to HTML5



HTML5 is the first major update to the HTML specification in more than a decade. A decade! And what an update it is! Exciting new features such as multimedia support, interactivity, smarter forms, and better semantic markup are present, but the slate is not being wiped clean and started from scratch. The HTML you know and love is still there for you to play with, as is XHTML. With HTML5, you are free to code your pages in (almost) any way you are familiar with, but mastery of your craft comes from understanding the history, conventions, and semantics (meaning) of what you are coding and from creating informed decisions that drive your authoring style.
