The current version of HTML in use on the web today was last updated in 1997. The Web has changed dramatically over those thirteen years and an update to HTML was desperately needed. In the mid 2000s a group called the Web Standard Project began developing HTML5. The goal of the project: develop an HTML standard capable of running full applications in a web browser. HTML5 introduces a number of new elements, attributes, events, and new ways for developers to create web pages and web applications using a version of HTML that is designed around how users are using the Web. In this course, Mark Long will introduce you to HTML 5. He will walk you through a number of practical examples that will quickly get you up and running. He will also teach you about the new features in HTML including: semantic tags, audio and video support, and events. Click the movie links below to get started today!
