To some, itís an outrageous attempt by browser manufacturers to foist what they want onto developers. In SitePointís HTML 5: Now or Never? article, Tommy Olsson described it as ďan abomination ... it mocks everything I consider important on the Web.Ē Others see it as the way forward for developing powerful multimedia web apps on an open architecture, without Flash or Silverlight or similar proprietary technologies. Doug Schepers, the W3Cís Team Contact for the SVG and Web Apps Working Groups says, ďHTML 5 is not a technical achievement, itís a social movement.Ē
While all the browsers I know of support the HTML Doctype, only a couple support the actual HTML5 tags (like <section> or <article>), so just be aware of that.
Most browsers, (barring Internet Explorer x.x+), treat any unknown elements as "xml"-ish. This means that they treat those elements as display:block, ect... They still have the normal properties, attributes, and abilities of previous elements <p>,<a>... but they are just not supported by HTML 4.
The IE team and browser is different because back in the way-hay-days of the web there were no real standards (there still are not, HTML5 is just a "forced" suggestion), just suggestions on what to do and how to do it. With IE having a monopoly on the web they decided to create algorithms to adapt and converge all the web documents into one method/design. This involved many contradicting terms, ideas, values, ect.. but created a magically compromised and similar page across many different systems.
With these adaptive algorithms came the need for those to stay similar to comply with business applications/processes. Thus when other bodies (standards groups, browser vendors) came into the view they all wanted to do their own way for everything. This has lead to almost two separate standards, IE and the w3c. Microsoft is stuck with the fact that they have to remain as consistent as possible for businesses and the w3c wants to push all of these radical ideas into the mix [Open Source [en,de]coding, universal error handling, exactly compliant fonts (size, shape, amount, quality), ect...].
With each new draft of HTML5 (no space) Microsoft is pushed farther and farther away from the new spec. They simply cannot change, and it's a very sad fact that I don't think the "open"/html5 web will come for 4-7+ years. IE will need to slowly integrate the new changes into the browser to allow businesses to cope and code for them.
(There may be errors, I wrote it in one shot.)
*EDIT* IE has actually implemented a few features that no other browser has. .onhashchange(); is a HTML5 proposed JS/DOM addition.

All of the ideas have been around from the early computer days, but seeing as browsers have been text-only for a long time and are not compliant with images, being able to run full "touchscreen" applications and dynamic adaptations is really a miracle in design.
There are many benefits of HTML5. It provides a new SQL-based database API that can be used for storing data locally, that is client side. You get fully defined and structured database storage. As it will be easy to see which parts of the page are headers, nav, footers, aside, etc.
Some conservatives have Coach Factory Outlet pushed that critique further, saying that Mr. Obama’s policies are too costly, often assist the wrong people Louis Vuitton Belts and could have the paradoxical effect of driving up college costs. The dispute turns not just on different Coach Factory Outlet assessments of how policies play out, but on differing philosophical views about the role of government. During Gucci Belts his time in office, Mr. Obama has sharply increased aid to low- and middle-income students, notably through the Pell Grant Coach Factory Outlet program, which grew from $14.6 billion given to 6 million students in 2008, to nearly $40 billion for Coach Factory Outlet almost 10 million students this year. His administration also made it easier to request aid, shortening the Coach Factory Online complex federal application and allowing people to transfer their financial information electronically from the Internal Coach Outlet Online Revenue Service database. But while many education experts laud his efforts, analysts of varying political Coach Outlet Online stripes have also questioned how much impact some of the president’s policies will have, noting that the prices Coach Online Outlet charged by colleges, and student borrowing, continue to climb.But behind the headlines about soaring costs, the Coach Factory Outlet Online reality is more complex and wildly uneven, because a growing number of students receive Coach Outlet Online financial aid, and only relatively high-income families pay those fast-rising sticker prices. Adjusted for Coach Factory Online inflation, the College Board calculates, the average net price changed little over the last decade at private Coach Factory Outlet schools, and rose only modestly at public ones.Defending federal spending, Arne Duncan, the secretary of Hermes Belts education, said that for more than 30 years, college prices had risen even when federal aid had not, leading him to believe Coach Factory Online there was zero correlation.
Youíve relativelyCoach Outlet recently arrived in New Delhi after living in two of Asiaís other great cities,Coach Outlet Store Online Tokyo and Hong Kong, for several years. Do these cities feel like theyíre part of the same continent? Yes, and no. In terms Coach Factory Onlineof infrastructure, they couldnít be more different. Getting regularCoach Outlet power and water at my house in New Delhi is never a sure thing, even though Coach Purse Outlet OnlineIím paying the same rent that I paid in Tokyo and almost the same electricity prices. Both Hong Kong and Tokyo are also crowded places,Coach Factory Outlet Online but both cities are incredibly well planned and efficiently run. Efficient is not a word I would use to describe my Coach Bags Outlet Onlineday-to-day life in New Delhi. On the other hand, one thing that I think Hong Kong and New Delhi have in common isCoach Handbags Outlet a shared sense of optimism ó a feeling that the best is yet to come. Thatís definitely not the feeling you get in Tokyo,Coach Outlet Online or in the U.S. when I go home. Itís a big part of what I find addictive about living and working in this part of the world. You feel like youíre watching the future unfold.
HTML5 is the latest version of HTML which include so many features which are very useful during programming. I appreciated the features of HTML5 such as <canvas> element for 2d drawing,<audio> and <video> elements for media playback,new form control such as calender,date,time,email etc.
