Complete Guide to HTML5. Get the information you need--fast! This comprehensive guide offers a thorough view of key knowledge and detailed insight. It's all you need.

Here's part of the content - you would like to know it all: Delve into this book today!..... 1, HTML5 is a response to the observation that the HTML and XHTML in common use on the World Wide Web are a mixture of features introduced by various specifications, along with those introduced by software products such as web browsers, those established by common practice, and the many syntax errors in existing web documents.

... The Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG) began work on the new standard in 2004, when the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) was focusing future developments on XHTML 2. 0, and HTML 4. 01 had not been updated since 2000.

... Although HTML5 has been well known among web developers for years, it became the topic of mainstream media around April 2010 after Apple Inc's then-CEO Steve Jobs issued a public letter titled Thoughts on Flash where he concludes that [Adobe] Flash is no longer necessary to watch video or consume any kind of web content and that new open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML5, will win.

... The Mozilla Foundation and Opera Software presented a position paper at a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) workshop in June 2004, focusing on developing technologies that are backwards compatible with existing browsers, including an initial draft specification of Web Forms 2.


There is absolutely nothing that isn't thoroughly covered in the book. It is straightforward, and does an excellent job of explaining all about HTML5 in key topics and material. There is no reason to invest in any other materials to learn about HTML5. You'll understand it all.
