HTML 5 Draft, Future of Web Content

At last HTML 5 Draft is published by world wide web.

W3C launched the HTML Working Group in March 2007 as a forum for building consensus around the new standard. The group has already published a set of HTML design principles, which include: ensuring support for existing content, codifying widespread practice, separating concerns (markup from presentation), and enabling universal access. These principles help guide the group’s decision-making.

Structure
HTML 5 adds new elements to specifically identify each of these common constructs:

  • section: A part or chapter in a book, a section in a chapter, or essentially anything that has its own heading in HTML 4
  • header: The page header shown on the page; not the same as the head element
  • footer: The page footer where the fine print goes; the signature in an e-mail message
  • nav: A collection of links to other pages
  • article: An independent entry in a blog, magazine, compendium, and so forth

Block semantic elements

As well as the structural elements, HTML 5 adds some purely semantic block-level elements:

  • aside
  • figure
  • dialog

Like this there are many new elements and attritbutes are added. For more information visit: http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-html5-diff-20080122/#new-elements

  1. Semantic User Interfaces - The Best Practices Says:

    I am currently in the process of writing a little disection of the good and bad bits of HTML5.

    Overall it’s not a big improvement on what we already have available to us.
