Did we just hear HTML5 is around?

There’s something always brewing on the WWW, well more often than not there are twists and then there are turns, whatsoever, gossips are always good. So what’s the new hottie? HTML 5, eh?
Just like a scratch card everyone’s excited to find out what’s the HTML 5 all about? What’s the good fuss all about and where’s the fizz coming out from? Well, HTML 5, some are looking forward to it, some are fade on their beliefs, some see it as far in the future, some consider it as an old flame in making, whatever side of the debate you are on, HTML 5 is indeed a subject you can’t ignore, really! 

HTML5- What’s on your mind?
It’s floating through all the possible corridors of the web, and becoming a ‘chatter’ among many, it is coming along and spreading like wild fire, so you must pay heed to what it exactly is before it is an old story. Stuff like jQuery Plugins, formatting techniques, and design trends keep changing and remodelled, and what sounds new today, could be obsolete the next day, we are all aware of these facts about web community. But, it is a great deal when something comes and changes the codes for they are believed to remain unchanged relatively for a long period of time. HTML 5 has a similar story. 

It is being looked at as the most hyped technology in recent times and the entire hullabaloo has something to do with what really it is all about. Some say it is all the ‘the then’ DHTML or AJAX with a blend of heavy baggage of information.
To be honest, if sources are to be believed, “HTML5 is simply a new set of standards, semantics and rules for coding website markup that can take advantage of several new “native” browser features such as offline storage, multi-media playback and a small level of interaction”, said an insider.
If there have been any HTML 5 websites lately, much of what we see as striking and dashing is the concoction of CSS3 and jQuery. The actual mark up isn’t much of a significant thing here. 

A little bit of more of HTML 5, here you go:
<! DOCTYPE html>, the new DOCTYPE is crisp, meaningful and easy to retain in memories.
HTML4.01, XHTML 1.0 and HTML 5 seem to be similar, but the syntax differences distinguish them from each other. There is a built in slack in HTML 5 that makes it even more defined.
The proper syntax for an input text element while marking up a form in HTML 5 would be
<input type="text" id="name">

Let’s look at some benefits:
  • HTML5 offers numerous APIs and the opportunities it opens up for web.
  • Web designers can use much cleaner, neater codes.
  • Since there will be more consistency by embedding HTML5, web designers will find it easier to comprehend how a web page is structured.
  • HTML lets you create highly interactive and animated websites that are exclusively engaging to the visitors.
  • With HTML5 there is a possibility to cure your “divitis” and “classitis” by using semantic and HTML headers.
  • For mobile web application development, HTML5 is your best partner.
