Like most people I know a little HTML, but I had not followed the new developments. There was something called xhtml that was some bastard hybrid of xml and html. Yeah I know xml and html are both mark up languages. One of the good things about html was that it was so forgiving of bad markup. Now I mostly use google sites or this blogging site, I hardly ever write pure html, but I use the GUI.
The new HTML5 stuff is:
- Better code for forms
- Improved video and audio support with no more plug in
- Some database support that is an update on cookies.
- Support for drawing and drag and drop.
- Geolocation API
